A Case of Rheumatoid Factor Detected in Spontaneous Abortion Patient.
Y S Nam, S Y Han, D H Choi, T K Yoon, K Y Cha
Abstract
It is not clear whether fertility or parity are altered in patents with rheumatioid arthritis. Pregnancy outcome in rheumatoid arthritis is generally good. Although a small number of patients may be positive for antiphospholipid antibody, values tend to be low titer and not generally associated with complications. Most series find no increased risk of spontaneous abortion, premature labor, or difficult delivery. One older report suggested an increased risk of spontaneous abortion prior to diagnosis of clinical disease, and fetal growth retardation has been described in a case of severe rheumatoid arthritis with vasculitis. We have experienced a case of rheumatoid factor detected in spontaneous patient. So we report this case with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Spontaneous abortion, Rheumatoid factor
