Abstract:

Treatment options for Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) in pregnancy are limited, and splenectomy is reserved for refractory ITP. There is robust data on the safety of laparoscopic surgeries in pregnancy for other non-obstetric conditions. We report a case of refractory ITP successfully managed by Laparoscopic Splenectomy (LS) in a pregnant patient, thus, making the procedure a gold standard in such rare medical scenarios.
