Abstract

We report the case of a 29-year-old woman with dermatomyositis. The disease was in a remissional state when she was pregnant. But the disease relapsed at the end of 1st trimester of her pregnancy. She was started to be treated with oral predonisolone 0.5mg/kg/day. A 2028g healthy male infant was born 5 weeks earlier than expected. Generally, pregnancies complicated with dermatomyositis are considered to be high-risk. This patient is expected to have a successful delivery, however, because she was pregnant at the time of disease remission.
