Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia - NAIT

Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT), also referred to as perinatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (PAT) or fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia, is the most common cause of severe thrombocytopenia (platelet count <50,000/µL) in the first few days of life of an otherwise healthy newborn. NAIT may lead to devastating consequences, including intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) and death.
