Thrombocytopenia Associated With Oral Infection: A Case Report

Thrombocytopenia is a hematologic disorder that is characterized by a markedly decreased number of circulating blood platelets (below 150 × 109/L). It can be further classified into mild (100-150 × 109/L), moderate (50-100 × 109/L), and severe (<50 × 109/L).

Platelets count less than 10 × 109/L is usually associated with an increased risk of spontaneous bleeding, petechiae, and bruising. Life-threatening hemorrhage may occur in patients with platelets count less than 5 × 109/L.
