My first post in your forum. Congratulations and keep up the good work. I would like to know your clinical prctice regarding diagnosis and management of NAIT. 1. Which combination of clinical symptoms and lab results are suggesting NAIT, taking into consideration that current anti platelet Ab detection has a high rate of false negatives? 2. What kind of trnsfusion product do you use. Random donor platelets, do you have typed platelets, do you perform mother platelet apheresis? 3. Have you come across any non-responders? 4. What about genetic councelling to parents of NAIT neonates? Dimtris Anastasiou Neonatology Resident Athens, Greece
One of our term newborn presented thrombocytopenia (with antibodies maternal IgG) and neutropenia (with maternal HLA antibodies), hours after transfusion of platelets and Ig Vena and Neupogen is better. Has anyone had any cases in which thrombocytopenia is associated with neutropenia? parents are South Americans. Thanks.
