A clinical report concerning a severe idiopathic thrombocytopenia during pregnancy (minimal platelet count 3000/mm3 is described). Corticosteroids and immunoglobulins were administered in preparation to elective cesarean delivery. Since the platelet count not improve significantly, 3 units of platelets from a single donor were adjunctively given using diapheresis. An elective cesarean delivery was performed at 34 weeks, without further complications. The newborn weighed 2550 g and the postnatal course was uneventful.
