Abstract

We conducted a detailed literature search for the rare combination of scleroderma and pregnancy. Ninety-four patients were reported, 14 of whom died during the course of the pregnancy, mainly due to secondary renal and cardiopulmonary involvement. Out of the 95 fetuses, 19 were lost. Thus, when complications arise, the option of prompt termination of the pregnancy should be considered.
