- 69 Downloads
In this study, we detected autoantibodies to platelet glycoproteins GPIIb/IIIa and GPIb/IX on platelets and in plasma in a patient with immune thrombocytopenia associated with Epstein-Barr virus—related infectious mononucleosis. In addition, we present our findings on the effectiveness of intravenous immunoglobulin therapy for immune thrombocytopenia associated with Epstein-Barr virus. Int J Hematol. 2003;78:168-170.
