Nail-patella syndrome and pre-eclampsia.


We present here the first described case of Nail-patella syndrome (NPS) and pregnancy. Complications occurred during the pregnancy with the onset of preeclampsia at 22 weeks, leading to intrauterine fetal death at 24 weeks. The nephropathy of the NPS began clinically during the course of gestation. Postpartum, it persisted as isolated proteinuria, which became a nephrotic syndrome 18 months later.
