Drug-induced nonimmune thrombocytopenia
Alternative namesThrombocytopenia (nonimmune) drug-induced; Nonimmune thrombocytopenia - drug-induced
Drug-induced nonimmune thrombocytopenia is a reduction in normally functioning platelets that can be caused by certain drugs.
Bleeding can be life-threatening if it occurs in the brain or other vital organ. Other drugs can increase the risk of bleeding by preventing platelets from working normally. A common example of this is aspirin.
