PMID:  6642048     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A pregnancy during which both beta-adrenergics and indomethacin were administered in order to stop preterm uterine contractions is reported. After 8 wk of therapy a Caesarean section was performed. The female neonate had all the characteristics of a Potter's facies, was anuric and died after 47 h of extra-uterine life. A possible relationship between this perinatal death and the prolonged intra-uterine exposure to indomethacin is discussed.
