Pregnancy may occur in the setting of endocrine diseases or be the first time these diseases manifest clinically. Management of pregnancy in these circumstances is challenging and requires a high degree of vigilance on the part of the treating physicians. The best outcome is achieved by a multidisciplinary approach consisting of endocrinology, obstetrics, anesthesiology, and endocrine surgery.
