Abstract

A young primigravida presented with postpartum haemorrhage with no apparent cause following a low forceps delivery. She was extremely pale with gross hepatosplenomegaly. Hysterectomy was performed following three episodes of disseminated intravascular coagulation. Investigations revealed an extremely high platelet count with poor aggregatory function. A diagnosis of primary thrombocythaemia was made.
