Program Description

In this inaugural Case Conversation session, Dr. Jim Bussel and Dr. Emilie Vander Haar offered case-based insight related to the diagnoses, treatment and management of fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT). The expert faculty featured the upcoming journal article, "New developments in fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia," and reviewed four clinical advances that could radically change the current approach to detection and management of FNAIT, how the treatment of challenging cases could change, and what it means for providers now and in the future. The case presentations and discussion were followed by an interactive Q & A session with participants.
