Doctor: Thank you for your question. The sudden drop in platelet count (Thrombocytopenia) could be due to your infection. This c auses excess platelets entering the spleen to be processed after removing the infection leaving inflammation. Once the infection is cleared, you can expect to experience a rise in platelets once more. Should this not occur, please follow up with your doctor.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
