The cause of acute kidney injury during pregnancy and in the postpartum period can be particularly challenging to diagnose, especially when it is necessary to differentiate among preeclampsia; eclampsia; hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelets (HELLP) syndrome; and thrombotic microangiopathies (TMAs). All these disease entities can present with kidney failure, microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, and thrombocytopenia. We present a teaching case of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome in the postpartum period in a young woman who was found to have mutations of uncertain clinical significance in the complement cascade, including in C3, CFH, and CFI...

BACKGROUND: Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. Women with gestational diabetes are more likely to experience adverse health outcomes such as pre-eclampsia or polyhydramnios (excess amniotic fluid). Their babies are also more likely to have health complications such as macrosomia (birthweight > 4000 g) and being large-for-gestational age (birthweight above the 90th percentile for gestational age). Current clinical guidelines support elective birth, at or near term in women with gestational diabetes to minimise perinatal complications, especially those related to macrosomia...

In a recent issue of Clinical Science, Stanhewicz et al. investigated persistent microvascular dysfunction in women up to 16 months postpartum. The authors found sensitivity to the pressor effects of endothelin-1 (ET-1) was enhanced when compared with women who had a normotensive pregnancy. Importantly, the authors demonstrated that this effect was mediated via the endothelin type B (ETB) receptors. Therefore, the present study highlights the possibility that alterations in the localization of the ETB receptor contributes to the pathogenesis of pre-eclampsia and future cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk...

Strokes are rare but severe accidents during pregnancy and post-partum period. They are responsible for high mortality and morbidity rates. Pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, and strokes are significantly related. Endothelial dysfunction, alteration of brain self-regulation and severe hypertension are, probably, the cause of many strokes in pregnant women and during postpartum period. We report a case of hemorrhagic stroke of the brainstem in a nonmonitored 21-year old patient at 38 weeks pregnant admitted with severe preeclampsia complicated by eclampsia and then by haemorrhagic stroke of the brainstem on the second post-operative day after cesarean section performed due to suspicion of retroplacental haematoma arisen since her admission...

Approximately 40% of all women report experiencing headaches during the postpartum period, regardless of a previous headache history. This case narrative describes the clinical case of a 22-year-old woman who presented for the evaluation of an intractable headache for 2½ weeks. It demonstrates the inherent difficulty in diagnosing patients not presenting with "textbook" symptoms and highlights the fact that signs and symptoms of eclampsia/preeclampsia, such as elevated blood pressure, may fall below the threshold for hypertensive emergencies and not be considered in the differential...

BACKGROUND: A number of first-trimester prediction models addressing important obstetric outcomes have been published. However, most models have not been externally validated. External validation is essential before implementing a prediction model in clinical practice. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this paper is to describe the design of a study to externally validate existing first trimester obstetric prediction models, based upon maternal characteristics and standard measurements (eg, blood pressure), for the risk of pre-eclampsia (PE), gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), spontaneous preterm birth (PTB), small-for-gestational-age (SGA) infants, and large-for-gestational-age (LGA) infants among Dutch pregnant women (Expect Study I)...

Visual symptoms in pregnancy are ominous. The spectrum of ocular symptoms seen in pre-eclampsia includes blurring of vision, scotoma, hemianopia and even total cortical blindness. Diplopia, though rare has also been reported in cases of pre-eclampsia and occurs due to pathological changes affecting the 6(th) cranial nerve. Ocular symptoms of pre-eclampsia usually regress after delivery but occasionally may present in the postpartum period. We present a case of a 34-year-old lady with severe pre-eclampsia at 31 weeks of gestation with diplopia presenting seven days post caesarean section...
