Abstract

We followed up a pregnant woman with Addison's disease diagnosed before conception. She presented with hyperemesis gravidarum. Throughout pregnancy, she received prednisone and the basic disease did not deteriorate during pregnancy. She was delivered by caesarean section due to breech presentation. The fetal prognosis was good. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
