Aplastic anemia is a rare complication of pregnancy that is associated with significant maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. The relationship between aplastic anemia and pregnancy is not yet clear. Aplastic anemia in pregnancy is difficult to manage because the risk of bleeding and infection is high, especially in refractory to platelet transfusion. There is no therapeutic guide-line and prognosis for aplastic anemia in pregnancy refractory to platelet transfusion. We recently experienced one case of aplastic anemia in pregnancy refractory to platelet transfusion without no peripartum complication. So we report this case with brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Aplastic anemia, Pregnancy, Platelet refractoriness
