PMID:  927767     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The 46th case of known pregnancy-induced pancytopenia is reported. Pregnancy may play an etiologic role in this rare condition, but the specific mechanism is unknown. Maternal mortality is 63%, and fetal and neonatal wastage is 46%. The patient reported is a 24-year-old Oriental woman who delivered a healthy female infant. Her survival is attributed to conservative management with carefully timed packed cell and platelet transfusions.
