Introduction: Thrombocytopenia is a common disorder in patients who admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) that has been showed as a bad prognostic factor for mortality and has a various causes. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of thrombocytopenia and its relation to bacterial sepsis as one of causes of this disorder in patients who admitted to the ICU.

Methods: This study was a retrospective analysis of all patients who hospitalized in ICU of a teaching hospital affiliated to Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences from 2012 to 2014.
Results: Of 387 patients, 231 patients (59.6%), at least one time, afflicted by thrombocytopenia. There wasn’t any significant difference between age and gender by thrombocytopenia incidence (P>0.05). Totally, 76 patients (19.6%) had positive blood culture that 58 cases (76.3%) occurred in thrombocytopenic patients.
