Abstract

The etiology of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is not fully understood. A genetic predisposition and other inciting factors have been suggested by several studies to bring about the full-blown syndrome. We report two cases of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura in two sisters with sudden onset during late pregnancy.
