Abstract
The pathogenesis of thrombocytopenia in the gestational thrombocytopenia is not understood.This syndrome may represent either the de novo development of ITP or an accelerationof the physiologic pattern of increased platelet destruction that occurs during gestation. Thisdisorder is not easily distinguishable from classical ITP. However, the recognition and diagnosisof this syndrome is important because infants born to individuals with gestational thrombocytopeniaappear to have a markedly reduced risk of developing thrombocytopenia when comparedto infants born to patients with a history of ITP antedating pregnancy. We represent a caseof delivery in severe gestational thrombocytopenia with brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Gestational thrombocytopenia, Classical ITP
