Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is one of the conditions that can cause your body to use up or destroy platelets more rapidly than they're produced which would lead to a shortage of platelets in your bloodstream. This is a rare condition. It occurs when small blood clots suddenly form throughout your body, using up large numbers of platelets. Keywords: thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura
