Abstract

29 pregnancies in 27 renal patients were reviewed. The etiology of renal disease was mainly glomerular (14 patients). At the beginning of pregnancy 11 patients had renal failure and 14 patients had a high blood pressure. Only two patients had pregnancy related worsening of the renal function (the two patients had a normal renal function before pregnancy). Maternal morbidity was infrequent with no mortality. Fetal loss was 21.5% related to prematurity. There were no congenital anomalies. Renal failure at the beginning of pregnancy caused an obstetric risk factor. (greater fetal prematurity and mortality).29 pregnancies in 27 renal patients were reviewed. The etiology of renal disease was mainly glomerular (14 patients).
