Abstract

Abstract The report describes a case of a 28-year-old woman who, despite many problems with scleroderma, was able to conceive and deliver a healthy baby. The main symptoms, problems, treatment and consequences of the disease that the patient experienced were presented. The authors paid attention to interdisciplinary medical care that such a patient should get. Apart from a gynecologist, a rheumatologist and a dermatologist should be involved in medical treatment. Although our patient did not demonstrate intensified symptoms of the main disease and did not need drugs, the authors showed problems, possible difficulties of treatment and consequences of sclerosis that every obstetrician can encounter in such cases. To increase the value of this article the authors included data from available literature to lay emphases on problems with scleroderma that can be met with a patient who needs treatment with a preconception, during pregnancy and afterwards, during lactation.
