Pregnancy outcome of patients with adult onset Still's disease (AOSD) has not been addressed. We report the maternal and fetal morbidity of 5 pregnancies from 3 Chinese patients with AOSD and review another 17 pregnancies from 14 patients reported in the English literature. Nine patients had their first manifestation in the 5th to 6th gestational month. Disease relapse in patients with known AOSDoccurred most commonly in the post-partum period. Most did not respond satisfactorily to nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents alone, but responded to administration of corticosteroids, especially in high doses.
