Asthma is the commonest pre-existing medical condition to complicate pregnancy. Acute severe asthma in pregnancy is rare, but poses difficult problems. In particular, the decision about when and where to deliver the fetus is complex, since maternal response to asthma treatment is unpredictable. We report the successful management of a parturient presenting with acute severe asthma at 37 weeks' gestation. The controversies involved and the importance of adopting a multi-disciplinary team approach to optimise maternal and neonatal outcomes are discussed.
