abstract

  • The spectrum of disease severity of alloimmune thrombocytopenia is reflected in the initial fetal platelet count and response to therapy. Fetal blood sampling may be associated with significant fetal/neonatal morbidity and mortality. Empiric therapy sufficient to treat the most severely affected fetuses will overtreat others and is likely to be associated with additional maternal morbidity.
