We describe a 16 year old girl with hypertension complicating NF1 secondary to severe coarctation of abdominal aorta and tight stenosis of right renal artery, a very uncommon case. She was first diagnosed when she was 3-years-old and managed with antihypertensive drugs (atenolol, hidralazine and nifedipine); she experienced progressive uncontrollable hypertension but no symptoms, thus she was admitted to repeat studies...

A cross-sectional study was realized in 38 patients with mild preeclamsia and 39 patients with normal arterial pressure values, both groups in their third trimester of pregnancy. We determined baseline arterial pressure, serum glucose and insulin, and the insulin/glucose ratio with at least 6 hours of fasting, and one hour after 50 g of glucose PO...

A case of renal transplantation during the 12th week of pregnancy is presented. An episode of rejection 6 days after surgery was treated satisfactorily. At the 18th week, the patient showed a mild hypertension which was treated by hidralazine. At the 30th week a fetal pyelouretheral stenosis with celiciar dilatation was diagnosed and the mother had another rejection episode. At the 33rd week a cesarean section was performed after a pathological NST. Neonatal and maternal developmental courses were good.
