Note Editore

Rheumatic and autoimmune diseases are often present in women during the childbearing years and as such, correct management of pregnancy throughout its course is of significance to all those affected. Previously women with systemic rheumatic diseases were counselled against pregnancy as the majority of medications carried potential or perceived teratogenic risk. But in recent years new therapies have emerged that have advanced treatment. Patients have experienced significant improvements in physical function, quality of life, and reduced damage accrual. As a result, an expanded cadre of health care providers now need to be able to manage pregnancy in women with underlying rheumatic disease, both in acute or chronic settings. Practical Management of the Pregnant Patient with Rheumatic Disease is a quick-access guide of the most up-to-date understanding of the interplay between pregnancy and rheumatic diseases and principles of management before, during and after pregnancy assisting in decision making regarding treatment of women with autoimmune diseases. This collection of 70 cases covers pregnancy counseling, the management of disease flares, thromboembolic disease, the management of patients with end organ disease, advice on medications, obstetric complications, infections and the management of rare diseases in women with rheumatic diseases before and during pregnancy and post-partum. The handbook provides concise recommendations for all providers who may encounter women of child-bearing age including rheumatologists, gynaecologists, paediatricians, primary care providers and health professionals dealing with pre-conceptional and pregnant women with rheumatic diseases.
