  Abstract 

There is no standard treatment for refractory idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) that occurs during pregnancy. We report the case of a patient with chronic ITP during pregnancy; the condition was refractory to steroids, intravenous immunoglobulin, high dose anti-D, and vincristine. The patient underwent cesarean section for maternal indications and developed postpartum hemorrhage, which was treated successfully with recombinant factor VIIa.

Keywords: cesarean section, intravenous immunoglobulin, high dose anti-D, intravenous vincristine, recombinant factor VIIa (Novo Seven), refractory idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura
