Abstract

CAMPILLO MOTILVA, Rita. Embarazo y lupus eritematoso sistémico. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2001, vol.17, n.6, pp.580-583. ISSN 0864-2125.

Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune and systemic disease that appears frequently in young women and, therefore, during the reproductive stage. It is associated with a high risk of morbidity and perinatal mortality. The most common complications are abortions, fetal death, prematurity, retarded intrauterine growth and neonatal lupus.The potentially harmful antibodies for gestation are the antiphospholipids (lupus anticoagulant and anticardiolipins) and anti-Ro and anti-La. With a correct preconceptional counselling and an adequate follow-up during pregnancy and puerperium, maternity may be faced with great probabilities of success in these patients.

Keywords : PREGNANCY COMPLICATIONS; LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, SYSTEMIC [genetics]; AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE [genetics].
