ABSTRACT
Objectives:
This study demonstrated the positive effect of herbal medication on a suspected idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) patient-a 57-year-old male with suspected ITP and a decreased platelet count.

Methods:
The patient was treated with an herbal medicine named Nokyongdaebo-tang, and its effect was measured with periodic platelet blood tests.

Results:
Before taking the herbal medicine, the patient’s blood platelet count was 98 K/μl, but following treatment, the blood platelet count increased to 201 K/μl and maintained a continuously elevated level.

Conclusion:
The results indicated that herbal medication may improve the blood platelet count of suspected ITP patients.
Key words: idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), herbal medicine, case report, Nokyongdaebo-tang
