My partner was admitted to the hospital for a low platelet count, and she was asymptomatic. They did a blood transfusion and gave corticosteroids. There was no improvement in her platelet level. The doctor suggested me to consult a hematologist. On her recent reports, her platelet count was 42000 platelets per microliter of blood on the automated count, and it was 82000 platelets per microliter of blood on the manual. Her report shows the presence of severe microcytic hypochromic anemia with thrombocytopenia. Please help us.
