Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is the most common cause of thrombocytopenia in children and can be defined as an autoimmune disorder of isolated thrombocytopenia without other causes of thrombocytopenia. This review will focus on the diagnostic approach of ITP, especially regarding the differential diagnosis. The practice of differential diagnosis has the goal of distinguishing primary ITP from secondary ITP and nonimmune thrombocytopenia requiring different treatments and showing different prognoses.
