MorrisBird: It sounds like alloimmune thrombocytopenia. This is a treatable condition, with a proper medical history of the parents. Remember how we used to have "blue babies" because Mom was A- and Dad A+? Kind of like that. Nowadays A- mothers just get a shot of Rhogam, and no more blue babies. With alloimmune thrombocytopenia, if mom is treated with intravenous gamma globulin during her pregnancy, no intracerebral bleeds in baby's brain. Healthy baby. I would say that the journalist leapt to a damned unfortunate conclusion without understanding the medicine. It's not a "wrongful birth." It's a failure to diagnose and treat alloimmune thrombocytopenia.
