Maternal ITP and Autism 3 years 10 months ago #66005

I have had ITP since I was a child, went into remission then it came back with a vengeance in 2016 at 31. I had a splenectomy with full recovery and got pregnant 6 months later. Unfortunately I had transplacental antibodies to my daughter born with 7K platelets which cleared by 3months once her body cleared my blood supply. At 2.5 she was diagnosed with autism (ASD). In the medical literature maternal autoimmune disease is associated with ASD. Wondering if there are any other ITP moms that have a child (children) with autism?

karinst, not knowing anything about this subject, I did a search of the word 'autism' on this message board. Here are the results.
pdsa.org/discussion-group/search.html?query=autism&searchdate=all&order=inc&childforums=1

I scanned through it. These members seemed to have comments somewhat related to your question.
'mumofwill'
'Terra'
'pegstirling'
'MuiseFamily6'

Hope this helps.
