The sticky platelet syndrome is an autosomic dominant disorder of the platelets with arterial and venous thromboembolic events. The syndrome characterizes by hyper aggregation of platelet in the plasma enriched in adenosindiphosphate and epinephrine. Clinically, the patients can present or display chest angina, acute infarct of the myocardium, transitory cerebro-vascular ischemic accidents, retinal, periphery arteries, and venous thrombotic accidents, frequently recurrent even under oral anticoagulation treatment. We present 4 cases of pregnant women seen at the high risk obstetric Unit at the Central Military Hospital in Bogotá, Colombia, with normal coagulation tests and that only displayed hyper aggregation of the platelets. A review of literature is presented.
