The vast majority of pediatric cases are self-limiting, allowing for conservative management in many instances with few adverse effects. When compared to adults with newly identified immune thrombocytopenia (NDITP), where thrombocytopenia typically persists and a higher risk of moderate to severe bleeding problems is present, there is a significant difference. Over the past decade, both domestic and global recommendations have been developed to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of NDITP, with most of the attention being paid to adult immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).
There are several gaps in the international consensus guidelines for pediatric NDITP, and the techniques taken in different regions (North America, Asia, Europe, and the United Kingdom) might be quite different. Current pediatric ITP guidelines in Australia and New Zealand are not easily accessible and instead vary by state, territory, and island. Patients, families, and doctors who are trying to manage cases are left in the dark due to these discrepancies. As a result, medical professionals from Australia and New Zealand have collaborated to develop a consensus approach guideline for pediatric NDITP. Pediatric ITP that lasts for an extended period is not covered because of its complexity and uniqueness.
