Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia and Pregnancy

Muataz Al-Ramahi, Abdallah Abbadi


Glanzmann's thrombasthenia is rare autosomal recessive platelet disorder caused by abnormal platelet
glycoprotein complex (GP IIb-IIIa) leading to excessive mucosal bleeding. Patients with Glanzmann's
thrombasthenia may present with hemorrhagic symptoms including mucosal bleeding, easy bruising and
post-surgical bleeding. We report a 37-year old lady, who underwent a cesarean section at term. She
received recombinant factor VIIa at the time of surgery. She had uneventful post operative period and
she was discharged home in good general conditions.
