Scand J Haematol. 1986 Jul;37(1):71-3. doi: 10.1111/j.1600-0609.1986.tb01774.x.


A patient with the Bernard Soulier Syndrome was successfully delivered of twins. The pregnancy was complicated by slight bleeding from the uterus during the first 8 weeks, by cord prolapse necessitating emergency caesarean section, and by moderate post partum haemorrhage. The management of pregnancy in the Bernard Soulier Syndrome is discussed.
