OBJECTIVE: To define factors influencing neurodevelopment in children with and without complete congenital heart block (CHB) born to mothers with Ro/SSA autoantibodies. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Medical records of a population-based cohort of siblings with (n=60) and without (n=54) CHB born 1974-2009 to anti-Ro/SSA positive mothers were retrieved from children primary health care centers and school health services and used to extract data on neurodevelopment. RESULTS: Impaired neurodevelopment was reported in 16% of the children (18/114) during the follow-up time of 13.0 (8.2-17.5) years, median (quartiles). Reported problems included speech (9%), motor (8%) and learning (8%) impairment, attention deficit (5%) and behavioral impairment (4%). Impairment of motor skill development was more common in boys (p<0.001) and if the child was born preterm (p<0.001). Learning impairment was significantly influenced by maternal SLE (p<0.005), while attention deficits was influenced by both maternal SLE (p<0.05) and CHB in the child (p<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Our data indicate that in addition to well established factors such as male sex and being born preterm, both maternal SLE and CHB may influence neurodevelopment. Follow-up of neurodevelopment should therefore be considered for children with CHB, especially if the mother is diagnosed with SLE. © 2012 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica © 2012 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.
