  3. 3.  Thrombocytopenia in neonates is traditionally difined as a platelet count <150000/mcL OveralI ncidence of neonatal thrombocytopenia is (0.7%–0.9%) In Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) it is very high (22%–35%)
  4. 4. Mild- (PC = 100000 – 150000/mcl)Moderate (PC = 50000 – 99000/mcl)Severe (PC < 50000/mcl)
  5. 5. CONDITIONFetal Alloimmune condition Congenital infection (e.g., CMV, toxoplasma, rubella, HIV) Aneuploidy (e.g., trisomy 18,13, or 21, or triploidy) Autoimmune condition (e.g., ITP, SLE) Severe Rh hemolytic disease Congenital/inherited (e.g., Wiskott- Aldrich syndrome)
  6. 6. CONDITIONEarly-onset Placental insufficiency (e.g., PET, IUGR, diabetes)neonatal (<72hr) Perinatal asphyxia Perinatal infection (e.g., Escherichia coli, GBS, Haemophilus influenzae), DIC Alloimmune condition Autoimmune condition (e.g., ITP, SLE) Congenital infection (e.g., CMV, toxoplasma, rubella, HIV) Thrombosis (e.g., aortic, renal vein) Bone marrow replacement (e.g., congenital leukemia) Kasabach-Merritt syndrome Metabolic disease (e.g., proprionic and methylmalonic acidemia) Congenital/inherited (e.g., TAR, CAMT)
  7. 7. Late-onset Late-onset sepsisneonatal (>72 hr) NEC Congenital infection (e.g., CMV, toxoplasma, rubella, HIV) Autoimmune Kasabach-Merritt syndrome Metabolic disease (e.g., proprionic and methylmalonic acidemia) Congenital/inherited (e.g., TAR, CAMT

  12. 12.  Immune thrombocytopenia occurs due to the passive transfer of antibodies from the maternal to the fetal circulation. Types: 1) Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT) 2) Autoimmune thrombocytopenia
  13. 13.  The antibody is produced in the mother against a specific human platelet antigen (HPA) present in the fetus but absent in the mother. The antigen is inherited from the father of the fetus. Early onset severe thrombocytopenia. The combination of severe neonatal thrombocytopenia with a parenchymal (rather than intraventricular) intracranial hemorrhage is highly suggestive of NAIT.
  14. 14.  Investigation : 1)Antigen screening (HPA 1,3,5,9,15,4) 2)Brain imaging studies Management: 1) Suspected NAIT in an unknown pregnancy 2) Known case of NAIT 3)Antenatal management of pregnant woman with previous history of NAIT
  15. 15.  Management of the neonate with suspected NAIT in an unknown pregnancy. 1) Random-donor platelet transfusion 2)IVIG (1g/kg/day for 2 days) 3) Antigen-negative platelet transfusion 4) Methylprednisolone (1 mg/kg bid for 3–5 days) Management of the neonate with known NAIT Antigen-negative platelet transfusion Antenatal management of pregnant women with previous history of NAIT IVIG to mother
  16. 16. Platelet Count (*10000mcl)<30 Transfuse all30-49 Transfuse if: • BW <1,500g and & 7 days old • Clinically unstable • Concurrent coagulopathy • Previous significant hemorrhage (i.e., grade 3 or 4 IVH) • Prior to surgical procedure • Postoperative period (72 hours)50–100 Transfuse if: • Active bleeding • NAIT with intracranial bleed • Before or after neurosurgical procedures
  17. 17.  Dose: 10 -15 ml/kg Complications: Transfusion-transmitted CMV infections Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) TRALI
