Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an auto-immune disease with the highest incidence in women of reproductive age. Recent studies indicate an increased rate of lupus flare during pregnancy. One main cause of death in lupus patients is renal involvement that is manifested as lupus nephritis. Active lupus nephritis is the biggest threat to pregnancy outcome in women with lupus. Consultation with a nephrologist, rheumatologist and perinatologist is recommended in order to carry a successful pregnancy to term.
Keywords: Lupus nephritis, Systemic lupus erythematosus, Pregnancy

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Recent studies indicated that high incidence of lupus occurs in women of childbearing age. Lupus and pregnancy have undesired reciprocal effects on one another. Lupus nephritis is one of the most hazardous manifestations of SLE during pregnancy. A tight control for these patients should be performed before, during, and after pregnancy.
