Nazli Hossain, Michael J Paidas
Adverse pregnancy outcome (APO), includes fetal loss > or =20 weeks' gestation (fetal death), severe preeclampsia <36 weeks, or severe intrauterine growth restriction (severe IUGR) defined as birth weight < or =5th percentile or < or =10th percentile for gestational age. APO affects 8% of pregnant women (320,000 annually) and collectively contributes to the largest proportion of maternal/fetal mortality and morbidity. Women with prior APO in antecedent pregnancy are at high risk of an adverse maternal or fetal outcome in the subsequent pregnancy...

Inherited thrombophilias, suggested to be risk factors for ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and known to be associated with venous thromboembolism during pregnancy, may also increase the risk for preeclampsia (PE). We describe the case of a 29-year-old woman with primary infertility with no history of thrombosis, hypertension or renal disorders. In her first pregnancy, achieved by frozen embryo transfer, she developed severe early-onset (23rd gestational week) PE with heavy proteinuria, and at the same time was found to have enlarged ovaries with hyperreactio luteinalis...

INTRODUCTION: The antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APA) is a potentially life-threatening disease in pregnancy, associated with spontaneous abortion, intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR), preeclampsia and foetal death in utero. One of the sequelae of the antiphospholipid-antibodies is an impaired uteroplacental circulation. We present a case where we diagnosed an antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APA) on the basis of a highly pathological Doppler flow in both uterine arteries. CASE REPORT: A 35-year-old G2P0 with a history of intrauterine foetal death in the 24th week was seen at 15 weeks in her second pregnancy for an ultrasound scan...
