Percutaneous Umbilical Blood Sampling in the Management of Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura During Pregnancy

N Vianelli et al. Haematologica.

Abstract

Severe neonatal thrombocytopenia occurs in about 15% of deliveries from women with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Conflicting data exist about the real usefulness of percutaneous umbilical blood sampling (PUBS) in evaluating the fetal platelet count. We report successful experience, using PUBS, in the management of 12 pregnant women with ITP.
