G3 A2-Came at 8 weeks of pregnancy with ITP

Patient Brief:

The patient came to the clinic at 8 weeks of pregnancy with ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura). The patient’s platelet count was 6000/cmm in the first trimester, which is considered a high risk for serious bleeding. The following platelet counts were monitored during the pregnancy: -At 28 weeks, the platelet count was stable at 70000/cmm. -After 28 weeks, the platelet count started dropping more.


The challenges, in this case, were to manage a high-risk pregnancy, control high blood pressure, and prevent spontaneous bleeding, which could be severe and pose a risk to both the baby and the mother.


If you’re pregnant and have been diagnosed with a critical condition, Gold Rush Hospital in Kharadi is well-equipped to provide you with the care and treatment you need. Dr. Kirti Khewalkar recommended that this patient be kept under strict monitoring for platelet count and regular obstetric ultrasonography. The patient started taking steroids for thrombocytopenia after 3 months of pregnancy.

 At Gold Rush Hospital, we want to help you have a healthy pregnancy by following a strict diet plan and exercise routine under the guidance of our experts. We also offer periodic counseling sessions to help with mental wellness and emotional wellbeing during pregnancy, as well as reduce fears and anxiety about childbirth and parenting. With our team of qualified experts, you can be confident that you’re in good hands at Gold Rush Hospital.


We delivered the patient at 32 weeks for thrombocytopenia with a platelet count of 17000/cmm. The mother was stable post-delivery and the baby required NICU care but recovered in 10 days. We’re happy to see smiles on the faces of the patient and her relatives as it was a life-saving case for both mother and child.
