A 13-year-old HIV-infected girl with thrombocytompenia: Paeditric case discussion, July 2006
The Paediatric Internet-based Discussion Group (PDG) assists health care professionals to resolve HIV-related clinical problems through the use of case studies. Difficult and interesting cases are e-mailed to group members, who e-mail their responses to all participants. This forum allows users to consult with one another, share their experiences, and utilise one another's expertise of treatment of HIV and HIV-related illnesses in an online discussion. The following case was presented to a group of South African paediatricians. The opinions of the participants are outlined below, followed by recommendations from experts in the field. Readers should be aware that opinions vary and may depend on resources available and regional differences in standard of care. Clinical judgement, reinforced by data, is of paramount importance.
