Abstract

HIV-related thrombocytopenia sometimes requires a therapeutic choice: current therapies are similar to those applied in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. Some Authors described a positive effect on platelets with Zidovudine (AZT) administration. We evaluated the efficacy of this drug in a group of 11 HIV-seropositive patients. Our results were not encouraging: increase in platelet count was obtained in a few patients only and it generally was of little importance.
