We report a case of a woman with a preexisting diabetes insipidus (DI), who had two consecutive uncomplicated pregnancies. Both pregnancies resulted after spontaneous conception and had a similar uneventful course. At the time of conception the patient was receiving 1-desamino-8D-arginine-vasopressin (DDAVP) 30 microg/d which maintained a urinary volume of 2-3 l/day. Pre-existing DI can be handled carefully and result in an uncomplicated pregnancy. In such cases careful monitoring of the patient's fluid balance and liver enzymes, as well as monitoring for pre-eclampsia and oligohydramnios during pregnancy are essential.
