In alloimmune thrombocytopenia (AIT), maternal antiplatelet antibodies to a paternally derived platelet antigen, usually PLA1, cross the placenta and destroy.
The natural incidence of triplets is 1 in 8000 pregnancies. With assisted reproductive techniques, the incidence has increased to between 1 in 850–2000..
