Due in part to the heterogeneous nature of the syndrome and the variety of the pathogenic mechanisms, no standard treatment has been established; however, several empirical therapies are used in patients with AATP and include the administration of corticosteroids, IVIG, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, cyclosporine, anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG), splenectomy (15), (18), allogenic bone marrow transplantation (19), and recently, mycophenolate mofetil (20).
The administration of corticosteroids, IVIG, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, androgens, and mycophenolate mofetil are transiently effective in occasional patients with AATP (1), (15), (16), (20); however, the administration of cyclosporine alone or in combination with ATG was shown to be very effective in the treatment of AATP (10), (15), (17), (18).
