Pregnancy, whether normal or complicated, induces change in nearly every system of the body. Because most rheumatologic disorders are multisystemic and often affect young women, it may be difficult to differentiate pregnancy-related change from new onset or exacerbation of rheumatic disease. Familiarity with common manifestations of pregnancy is important in evaluating young women of childbearing age,whether or not they have known rheumatologic disease. Presentation of new connective tissue disease during pregnancy is often associated with poorer prognosis, so it is especially important to distinguish between pregnancy-induced change and true autoimmune inflammation requiring prompt and aggressive therapy.
