Abstract

Bernard–Soulier syndrome is a rare bleeding disorder, and there is scant literature on the pregnancy outcome in  women  with  this  syndrome.  Due  to  the  bleeding  tendency  in  this  disease,  pregnant  woman  may  have  ante-, intra- or postpartum complications. We report our experience of managing a pregnant woman with Bernard–Soulier syndrome who had a successful pregnancy outcome, and review the existing literature on pregnancy in women with this syndrome.
