Abstract:

Pseudothrombocytopenia is an in vitro sampling problem which may mislead the diagnosis towards the more critical condition of thrombocytopenia. The phenomenon occurs when the anticoagulant used while testing the blood sample causes clumping of platelets which mimics low platelet count without any clinical signs. This may determine unnecessary, expensive and invasive investigations and even treatment. In this article we report two cases of pseudothrombocytopenia diagnosed in pediatric patients.
