Abstract

Between 1970 and 1982, 13 renal transplant recipients had 17 pregnancies with follow-up at the Medical College of Georgia (MCG). Nine patients received related donor grafts and four received cadaver kidneys; 11 mothers survived their pregnancies. Preeclampsia, urinary tract infections, and preterm labor were frequent complications. Perinatal complications were rare, and 12 of 13 continuing pregnancies produced surviving infants. Only one infant had congenital abnormalities (premature closure of the fontanelles and umbilical hernia). We present maternal and neonatal details, with prognostic considerations for pregnancy in such patients.
