thrombocytopenia is an infrequent and
severe disease that is
unexpectedly found after an uncomplicated first pregnancy. Affected infants
might show unexplained purpura, intracranial hemorrhage, and/or
gastrointestinal or genitourinary hemorrhage. Nevertheless,
in asymptomatic newborns the thrombocytopenia may be discovered incidentally.
We describe a case report that highlights that the incidental diagnosis of FNAIT
allows both properly managing the newborn, and detecting maternal anti-HPA1a
antibodies in order to prevent the disease in subsequent pregnancies. A
non-invasive treatment based on IVIgG allowed to this patient to prevent FNAIT
in her second pregnancy.
