Thrombocytopenia in neonates occurs due to various causes, and pregnancy induced hypertension has been implicated as one of the maternal etiologies. The frequency and severity of thrombocytopenia vary. Severity of thrombocytopenia may influence the morbidity, warrant intervention and rarely may lead to life threatening hemorrhages. A better understanding of thrombocytopenia due to this etiology helps optimize the care. In the present review the author discusses the frequency, mechanisms, severity, characteristics and natural course, and management options for neonatal thrombocytopenia due to hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.
