British Journal of Hematology. ISSN 1365-2141. 113:3, p. 649-651
Resumo: We report the results of 10 years of prophylactic fresh-frozen plasma (FFP) infusion therapy in a 14-year-old girl with chronic relapsing thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), in whom a severe congenital von Willebrand factor (VWF)-cleaving protease deficiency has been documented. Severe haemolytic crises triggered by infections were prevented and her present renal and neurological functions have been preserved. Sequential measurements of protease activity and platelet count after FFP infusion led us to conclude tentatively that 5% may be sufficient to degrade very large and adhesive VWF multimers.
