Figure 1.
Figure 1. Platelet counts per microliter in cyclical thrombocytopenia before and after treatment with danazol. Platelet nadirs correlate to the patient’s menstrual cycle and a cyclical nature is clearly demonstrated. Danazol was started on the 14th week (as shown by arrow) and stabilized platelet counts around 100 × 103/µL.
