Therapy with high-dose intravenous gamma globulin in the newborn infant with thrombocytopenia from passive immunization



Therapy with high-dose intravenous gamma globulin in the newborn infant with thrombocytopenia from passive immunization



La Pediatria Medica E Chirurgica 7(4): 567-568



High doses of gammaglobulin intravenously have been found useful in controlling thrombocytopenia of a neonate born to a mother who developed acute idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura during pregnancy. Administration of 0.4 gm/kg/day of intact gammaglobulin intravenously for five days was followed by dramatic rise of platelet count without any side-effect. After 1 month the platelet count was still normal. Passively-acquired immune thrombocytopenia of the newborn consequently is another indication for intravenous gammaglobulin therapy.
