16 adult idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) patients, with mean age 51 years, were treated by 5 weekly slow intravenous infusions of vinblastine ( mg/kg). When a complete or partial response (CR or PR) was obtained, slow infusions were repeated at 2‐weekly then monthly intervals, as maintenance therapy. In 4 cases with ITP of recent onset, but presenting contraindication or failure. ADULT IDIOPATHIC THROMBOCYTOPENIC PURPURA fall below 1 00x1 09/l after treatment was stopped. These cases were not retreated immediately either because of patient default, or physician's impression that treatment was not necessary. Treatment Dependent Complete Remission (TDCR): A.
