Answer

In 2019, the American Society of Hematology (ASH) published an update to its 2011 evidence-based practice guideline for immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). The 2019 guideline comprises strong recommendations and conditional recommendations/suggestions. Recommendations and suggestions are provided separately for pediatric and adult patients. Some of the 2011 recommendations remain unchanged and were not included in the 2019 review and update. [8]  In 2013, ASH issued a clinical practice guide on the treatment of thrombocytopenia in pregnancy, based in part on the 2011 guideline. [18, 42]

In 2019, an international group of experts published an International Consensus Report on the investigation and management of primary immune thrombocytopenia, covering adult, pediatric, obstetric, neonatal, and emergency management. The report updates an earlier guideline published in 2010. [40]
