Abstract

We report a case of a parturient with immune thrombocytopenic purpura and platelet count of 26,000/mm3, unknown before induction of labor analgesia, who presented in active labor and received continuous epidural labor analgesia for an uneventful vaginal delivery. No neurologic or hematological complications were reported.
