The mean birth weight, Apgar score at 1 minute and Apgar score at 5 minutes was less in cases as compared to control. The mean platelet count among cases of thrombocytopenia has shown significant rise between 48 hours and 6 weeks after delivery. Conclusion: Preterm labour and low birth weight is more common in pregnancy complicated by thrombocytopenia. Maternal complications are more in cases than in controls; therefore careful surveillance is required for early detection and management of complications in pregnancy complicated by thrombocytopenia.
