Author(s): Dr. Nidhi Chandil, Dr. Sonia luthra, Dr. AD Dwivedi and Dr. Ankita singh
Abstract: Background: To study the prevalence of thrombocytopenia during pregnancy, its etiology and maternal and perinatal outcome.
Methods: It was a prospective one year study of pregnancy with thrombocytopenia. The prevalence and cause of thrombocytopenia during pregnancy and its effect on maternal and perinatal outcome was studied.
Result: Among 990 deliveries, 104 women were having thrombocytopenia during pregnancy. The commonest etiology was gestational thrombocytopenia (61.53%). Fetal complications were still birth (5.88%), low birth weight (14.7%), and neonatal thrombocytopenia (1.92%). Thrombocytopenia in pregnancy did not affect the mode of delivery and pre-term delivery rate.
Conclusion: Gestational thrombocytopenia, preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome, malaria, ITP and dengue were the common causes of thrombocytopenia in pregnancy. Patients with GT and ITP have better maternal and peri-natal outcomes as compared to preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome.
