So the objective of this study is to report the clinical presentation and perinatal outcomes after COVID-19 infection during pregnancy or the puerperium.

Materials & Methods

 In this case series study, since February 2020, 25 pregnant women with a definitive diagnosis of the COVID-19 infection were registered. Their clinical signs and symptoms, laboratory findings, CT manifestations, pregnancy status, were recorded at the first visit, and they were followed six months after diagnosis.
