EDTA blood samples were taken for CBC, Hb, APC, estimation and citrated blood in 1:9 dilution were taken for PT & PTTK estimation.Results:In our study incidence of petechiae, ecchymosis &malena was does not depend on age group, but epistaxis &Haemetemesis depends on age group. Here using Pearson Chi-Square test we conclude p value to be significant (p<0.05) thus supporting the basis of this study that incidence of various etiologies of thrombocytopenia varies according to age group. Male & female ratio was 2.12:1was seen in this study.Conclusion: This study is to provide a firm knowledge of the major causes of thrombocytopenia  and to form a broad differential diagnosis.
