Fragmented red blood cells and thrombocytopenia

Fragmented red blood cells and thrombocytopenia

Fragmented red blood cells and thrombocytopenia in the case of a thrombotic thrombo­cytopenic purpura (TTP). In the partially thrombosed capillaries the red blood cells are exposed to a high degree of shearing force, which causes them to burst.
