We present a case of a 27-year-old primigravida, a known case of immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), who is presented in our outpatient department in latent labor at 36 weeks of gestation with platelet count 36,000/µL. She has been on prednisolone since the first trimester and has a history of platelet transfusion at 28 weeks of gestation. She was given platelet transfusions during labor, and delivered vaginally a male baby with an appearance, pulse, grimace, activity, and respiration score of 8/10 and 10/10 with normal platelet counts at birth and 24h later. She was discharged on the 7th postnatal day. The aim of this case report was to discuss ITP in pregnancy, its clinical presentation, and management.
