    Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) is caused by production of platelet autoantibody. Then ITP can be caused by various viral infections, including Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus, Zika virus and others [1]. Episodes of ITP can range from mild to life-threatening.

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, in our patient the possible cause is the new coronavirus.
