COMITE NACIONAL DE HEMATOLOGIA. Guideline for diagnosis and treatment of immune thrombocytopenia. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2010, vol.108, n.2, pp.173-178. ISSN 0325-0075.

Management, outcome, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of immune thrombocytopenia are controversial. Several guidelines stating different experts' opinions have been published; however, no worldwide consensus regarding the management of the disease has been reached yet. This guideline defines diagnostic criteria, states initial laboratory tests, establishes differential diagnosis, develops topics concerning outcome and prognosis, and enumerates available treatments for acute and chronic disease, as well as for management of life-threatening bleeding.
