Abstract

Thrombocytopenia is a common occurrence in pregnancy. Although pregnancy is associated with physiological changes in platelet count, several pathological conditions cause thrombocytopenia, which can have a significant impact on the mother and the baby. There are diverse etiologies for thrombocytopenia, some of which are unique to pregnancy. This review provides a detailed discussion of the diagnosis and management of the various causes of thrombocytopenia in pregnancy.
