Immune thrombocytopenia is characterized by reduced platelet count. This condition occurs in both adults and children. The most common form of thrombocytopenia is primary ITP and autoantibodies are involved in its development. In this study, our patient was a pregnant woman with ITP who showed refractory to prednisolone and splenectomy as first and second line treatment, respectively, but the response to treatment with Romiplostim and platelet count was favorable, and delivery was reported without fetal complications.
