In 1924 Doctor Moschcowitz described for the first time a young woman with fever, haemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, renal failure and neurological symptoms. Thus the name Morbus Moschcowitz arose. This disease was given in 1947 by K. Singer, F. P. Bornstein and A. Wiles the term TTP (thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura).
Hyaline thrombosis of the terminal arterioles and capillaries: a hitherto undescribed disease.
