Abstract

The effect of corticosteroids on the course of pregnancy and its outcome was studied in 30 pregnancies in women with bronchial asthma. Complications observed included first trimester abortion, premature delivery, fetal distress, and congenital malformations. Fetal loss was not associated with the dose of steroids. There was, however, a relationship between long term steroid treatment in pregnancy and fetal loss, but the group was too small to draw firm conclusions.
