Thalassaemia and pregnancy

Viktoriya Luk'yanenko, Marjoes Droogh, Ulrik Malthe Overgaard

    Abstract

    Global migration has resulted in a larger geographical spread of people with risk of hereditary anaemias. This leads to an increased incidence of pregnant women with rare diseases, including thalassaemia also in Scandinavia. Thalassaemia can cause severe anaemia and other complications during pregnancy, like risk of miscarriage, intrauterine fetal death, abruptio, intrauterine growth retardation, hypertension, gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia. In this article, we focus on the aetiology, assessment, antenatal care and treatment of pregnant women with thalassaemia.
