Abstract

Maternal thrombocytopenia is a common finding during pregnancy. The rapid determination of its cause can often be difficult, with the diagnosis only being made in retrospect once the course of the platelet count is known. The majority of patients with thrombocytopenia in pregnancy will have incidental thrombocytopenia of pregnancy which is of no clinical significance.
