Diagnosed Systemic Lupus Erythematosus in Pregnancy with Osteonecrosis of Femoral Head and Successful Pregnancy Outcome
SLE carries high risks during pregnancy and may affect both mother and fetus. The patients are advised for planning conception due to the adverse effects of long term corticosteroid treatment for SLE. Osteonecrosis of the femoral head in SLE is rarely reported during pregnancy. In spite of higher complications related to SLE in pregnancy here we report a case of 27 year old pregnant woman with diagnosed SLE and osteonecrosis of the femoral head along with the successful pregnancy outcome.
