Abstract

Thrombocytopenia with absent radii (TAR) is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by hypomegakaryocytic thrombocytopenia and bilateral radial aplasia. We performed mutational screening of coding and promoter regions of the c-mpl gene, encoding thrombopoietin (TPO) receptor, by sequence analysis in four unrelated patients affected by TAR syndrome. Our results indicate that c-mpl gene mutations are not a common cause of thrombocytopenia in TAR syndrome.
