As the platelet equivalent of hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn, fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT) is an uncommon yet complex and life-threatening bleeding disorder that results from incompatibility between mother and baby for platelet-specific antigens. Despite relatively normal platelet function, in the setting of severe thrombocytopenia, intracranial hemorrhage is a consequence. Drs. Shulman and Bussel discuss advances in management strategies and concrete steps you can take to lower the risk and stop the progression of this disorder in your patients.
