Summary

During your obstetric call duty in a tertiary hospital center, you receive a telephone call from a colleague at an external center for an incidental isolated platelet count of 69 × 109/L in a 22-year-old primigravida with a singleton pregnancy at 24+3 weeks’ gestation by early dating sonography. The full/complete blood count (FBC/CBC) was performed to follow up on iron-deficiency anemia. Fetal activity is normal.
