https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4062924
The New England Journal of Medicine; Huybrechts KF, Palmsten K et. al.

Jun 18th, 2014 - Whether the use of selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and other antidepressants during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of congenital cardiac defects is uncertain. In particular, there are concerns about a possible association between paroxetine use and right ventricular outflow tract obstruction and between sertraline use and ventricular septal defects. We performed ...

Molecular Psychiatry; Clements CC, Castro VM et. al.

Aug 26th, 2014 - Previous studies suggested that risk for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may be increased in children exposed to antidepressants during the prenatal period. The disease specificity of this risk has not been addressed and the possibility of confounding has not been excluded.

Apr 1st, 2010 - Biliary atresia (BA) is a progressive, idiopathic obliteration of the extrahepatic biliary system occurring exclusively in the neonatal period. It is the most common disease leading to liver transplantation in children. The etiology of BA is unknown, although infectious, immune and genetic causes have been suggested. Although the recurrence of BA in families is not common, there are more than 3...

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis for hemoglobinopathies.
https://doi.org/10.3109/03630269.2011.608457
Hemoglobin Kuliev A, Pakhalchuk T et. al.

Sep 13th, 2011 - Hemoglobinopathies are the most frequent indications for preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), allowing couples at-risk of bearing offspring with thalassemia and sickle cell disease to reproduce without fear of having an affected child. The present experience includes PGD for sickle cell disease, α- and β-thalassemia (α- and β-thal). We present here the results of the world's largest experie...

https://doi.org/10.1093/cid/cir410
Clinical Infectious Diseases : an Official Publication Of... Bercovitch RS, Catanzaro A et. al.

Aug 3rd, 2011 - Pregnancy is an established risk factor for the development of severe and disseminated coccidioidomycosis, particularly when infection is acquired during the later stages of gestation. Although recent studies suggest that the incidence of symptomatic coccidioidomycosis during pregnancy is decreasing and that outcome has improved, management is complicated by the observations that azole antifung...

Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology; Ditisheim A, Sibai BM

Dec 22nd, 2016 - Subcapsular liver hematoma is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication of preeclampsia and hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelets syndrome.

Urology Storm DW, Hirselj DA et. al.

Jun 24th, 2010 - Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome is a rare congenital overgrowth syndrome. It carries important connotations for the pediatric urologist because it is associated with an increased risk for developing certain embryonal tumors. Until recently, these patients were not diagnosed until after birth; however, with newer imaging modalities, this syndrome may be diagnosed prenatally. We present a case of Bec...

How I manage neonatal thrombocytopenia.
https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2141.2011.08892.x
British Journal of Haematology; Chakravorty S, Roberts I

Sep 28th, 2011 - Although neonatal thrombocytopenia (platelet count < 150×10(9) /l) is a common finding in hospital practice, a careful clinical history and examination of the blood film is often sufficient to establish the diagnosis and guide management without the need for further investigations. In preterm neonates, early-onset thrombocytopenia (<72h) is usually secondary to antenatal causes, has a character...
