Thrombocytopenia is encountered in 7-8% of all pregnancies. Thrombocytopenia is second to anemia as the most common hematological abnormality during pregnancy [1- 2]. Thrombocytopenia is defined as a platelet count below 150 x109/L, caused by accelerated platelet destruction or decreased production. It is classified as mild with a platelet count of 100–150x 109/L, moderate at 50–100 x109/L, and severe with less than 50x 109/L [3-4]. In normal pregnancies 7.6% of women present with mild thrombocytopenia and 65% of them will not be associated with any pathology .
