Abstract

The Authors conducted a retrospective study concerning maternal platelet count fluctuation during pregnancy and puerperium and its correlation with the newborn’s platelet level in a group of 36 patients referred to the haematologyclinic of the Santo Bambino Hospital, c/o Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria Policlinico-Vittorio Emanuele, Catania, Italy, for gestational thrombocytopenia (GT) and who delivered at the same hospital during a period of 4 years, from January 2006 to December 2009. Mothers and their related foetuses-newborns were evaluated retrospectively for symptoms and/or signs of external and internal haemorrhage throughout pregnancy and early puerperium, even in relationship with mode of delivery (caesarean section versus spontaneous vaginal delivery). This study according to the literature confirm that all observed cases of GT have an uncomplicated course with no related perinatal and maternal morbidity even in patients with initial platelet count <75,000/ml independently from the route of delivery.
