The COVID-19 infection remains a major pandemic threatening global health. Studies revealed that pregnant women are more prone to develop severe illness, with an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. So the objective of this study is to report the clinical presentation and perinatal outcomes after COVID-19 infection during pregnancy or the puerperium.
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.
The most common symptoms were cough, feeling feverish, and dyspnea. Twenty mothers required hospitalization, 5 out of 20 monitored in COVID-ICU. The chest CT scan demonstrated a grand glass appearance in 77% of cases among admitted patients. The total mortality rate in C-ICU (COVID-19 ICU) admitted patients were 80%.
In this case series, among 25 pregnant women with confirmed COVID-19, the most vulnerable patients were in the early third trimester and twin pregnancy.
