Abstract

Thrombocytopenia is a phenomenon sometimes observed in connection with various obstetric syndromes. Many times it appears clinically to be a comparatively benign complication of an otherwise significant disease. In some cases, however, it may be a clue to serious disease and its pathophysiology. The subject of thrombocytopenia induced by or related to various obstetric syndromes is reviewed and comments offered regarding the significance of the observation of platelet deficiency in these conditions.
