idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura is also what stands out... this means a low platelet count... very low. Platelets are one of the clotting factors and without them children can bruise easily, and even develop brain bleeds. And they say its SAFE! I know of a few kids with ITP and the pictures of these kids bruises caused by ITP are scary!
