abstract

  • In this report, we describe a mother with mild incidental thrombocytopenia who delivered a severely thrombocytopenic infant having alloimmune thrombocytopenia. This coincidental association should be considered because the recognition and proper diagnosis of alloimmune neonatal thrombocytopenia is important, not only in the current pregnancy, but also in future pregnancies.
