Gestational thrombocytopenia is a primarily benign condition of pregnancy of uncertain significance, believed to be related to idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura.

There are 5 criteria:

  2. no evidence of fetal thrombocytopenia
  3. development late in pregnancy
  4. no history of thrombocytopenia outside of pregnancy
  5. spontaneous resolution once the child is delivered
