Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is a rare condition that affects women of childbearing age with important implications in pregnancy. It is characterised by low immunoglobulins (Igs), poor antibody response and a susceptibility to recurrent infections. The cornerstone of management of CVID is Ig replacement. As the transfer of IgG across the placenta in the third trimester of pregnancy is necessary for protection of the infant in the first months of life, failure to recognise this condition and treat it appropriately can have adverse consequences for the neonate, as well as the mother. Here we describe the complex perinatal medical management of a 34-year-old woman who was diagnosed with CVID in the 26th week of pregnancy.
