PMID:  6853454     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A pregnant patient who presented with physiologic as well as psychologic denial throughout the course of pregnancy is described. Despite the intensity of her defensive system, the patient was able to function adequately in all other areas of her life before, during, and after the pregnancy. This case illustrates the need for pregnancy testing in any female of childbearing age who ceases menses.
