Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinura is a very rare acquired clonal hematopoietic cell disorder leading to chronic intravascular hemolysis caused by abnormal complement activation. Pregnancy in a patient with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria is often complicated with thrombosis resulting serious materno-fetal morbidity and mortality. A case of successful maintenance of the pregnancy, delivery and postpartum in a woman at gestational age of 37 weeks and 2 days with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria managed with prophylactic transfusions and anticoagulation therapy by low molecular weight heparin is presented with a review of literature.
Key Words: Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, Low molecular weight heparin, Pregnancy
