[Systemic lupus erythematosus and pregnancy].
Schreiber K., Lykke JA., Nielsen HS., Jacobsen S.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a complex autoimmune disease which most often affects women of childbearing age. Pregnancy is therefore an important issue for the patient and the responsible physician. Pregnancy outcomes in women with SLE has improved significantly over the latest decades, and current research initiatives aim towards further improvement. Pregnant women with SLE are still considered being at various levels of risk. In order to achieve the best possible outcomes for mother and child, joint care in specialised multidisciplinary teams including rheumatologists and obstetricians is recommended.
