2 6 . 27 The frequency of actual low fetal platelet counts has been surprisingly low. Although Moise2 6 found counts below normal (150,000) in 23%, clinically important thrombocytopenia (below 50,000) was only seen in 1 of 23 sampled fetuses. 2 6 also found a difference between two twins (151,000 and 104,000), suggesting that sampling only one fetus in such a setting is insufficient. Scioscia27 similarly reported clinically important thrombocytopenia in only one of 20 fetuses studies. Since the appearance of that report, we have studied an additional 20 mothers with no further significant fetal thrombocytopenia (Grannum, unpublished observations).

In the Wiscott-Aldrich syndrome, an X-linked disorder, fetal platelets are diminished in number and smaller than normal. 21 Fortunately, the other disorders have not been associated with excessive bleeding from the cord after puncture. Maternal isoirnmune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a more common disorder. While maternal production of IgG antibodies to her own platelets is generally held to be the cause of the disorder, clinical detection of the antibodies is relatively insensitive. The presentation is that of maternal thrombocytopenia, with no defects in the red or white cell lines.
