A 33-year-old woman developed deep venous thrombosis at 7 gestational weeks (GW). Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia was evident at 9 GW during unfractionated heparin infusion. Immediately, anticoagulation therapies together with antithrombin (AT) infusion were commenced with the use of argatroban from 9 GW, and fondaparinux was substituted for argatroban after 24 GW. The patient had hereditary AT deficiency type I determined by laboratory findings and results of genomic DNA analysis. The pregnancy ended in full-term vaginal delivery of a healthy male without adverse effects of the anticoagulation therapies. This was the first report of a pregnant woman who developed heparin-induced thrombocytopenia caused by heparin therapy for deep venous thrombosis due to AT deficiency.
