A practice guideline aimed at standardizing the treatment for childhood idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is presented. This consensus guideline is based on a survey carried out via a questionnaire prepared by the ITP Committee of the Japanese Society of Pediatric Hematology and sent to society members. The survey questionnaire included questions on the diagnosis of ITP submitted for the purpose of revising the ITP diagnostic guideline prepared in 1990 by the Research Group for Intractable Hematopoietic Disorders; a revised diagnostic guideline also is presented.
