Obstetric and anesthetic considerations in the May-Hegglin anomaly. A case report.
J Reprod Med. 1993 Apr; 38(4):311-3.JR

Abstract

The obstetric and anesthetic considerations in the management of a patient with the May-Hegglin anomaly, an autosomal dominant platelet deficiency, are discussed. A review of the medical literature notes three previous case reports of May-Hegglin anomaly in pregnancy. In addition to the two successful pregnancies reported in this paper, there are four infant survivors among the five reported pregnancies. Anesthetic managements included general and spinal anesthesia: the latter employed following platelet transfusion. A successful pregnancy should be anticipated when management includes a well-informed patient and coordinated obstetric and anesthetic care.
