Abstract

We studied the behavior of blood lymphocyte subsets in 25 adult patients with autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura (ATP) submitted to splenectomy. An increase of absolute concentrations of T-subset lymphocytes was observed in the different groups of splenectomized patients; in no responding/relapsing subjects was an activation of T-lymphocytes demonstrated.
