OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to describe the clinical manifestations and CT features of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pneumonia in 15 pregnant women and to provide some initial evidence that can be used for guiding treatment of pregnant women with COVID-19 pneumonia. MATERIALS AND METHODS. We reviewed the clinical data and CT examinations of 15 consecutive pregnant women with COVID-19 pneumonia in our hospital from January 20, 2020, to February 10, 2020. A semiquantitative CT…

Clinical observation of different treatment strategies in pregnant women with COVID-19: a retrospective study

SARS-COV-2 infection could cause spontaneous miscarriage and fetal malformation in early pregnancy, according to a study of pregnant women with COVID-19 in different stage during pregnancy.

Clinical Presentation and Outcomes of Pregnant Women With Coronavirus Disease 2019: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

The clinical picture in pregnant women with COVID-19 did not differ from the nonpregnant population; however, the rate of preterm birth and cesarean delivery are considerably higher than international averages.


There is relatively higher rate of cesarean delivery and overall feto-maternal outcome was good and there was no evidence of vertical transmission in patients admitted with COVID-19.

COVID-19 infection during pregnancy - maternal and perinatal outcomes: a tertiary care centre study

Pregnant infected women with COVID-19 had different symptoms, and they were given mostly supportive treatments than the general infected population, which suggests that pregnant women and their fetuses are particularly susceptible to poor outcomes.

Main predictors of severe COVID-19 course in pregnant women were a decrease in the levels of erythrocytes and lymphocytes and increase in the Levels of alanine aminotransferase and CRP, which could contribute to preterm delivery or maternal morbidity.

Clinical Characteristics and Neonatal Outcomes of Pregnant Patients With COVID-19: A Systematic Review

The study findings show that the clinical, laboratory and radiological characteristics of pregnant women with COVID-19 were similar to those of the general populations, and C-section should not be routinely recommended anymore according to latest evidences.

Impact of COVID-19 infection on maternal and neonatal outcomes: a review of 287 pregnancies

This review showed fewer adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes in pregnant women with COVID-19 in comparison with previous coronavirus outbreak infection in pregnancy.

A Systematic Review of 571 Pregnancies Affected by COVID-19.

The characteristics of pneumonia caused by CO VID-19 in pregnant women do not appear to be different from those in the general population with COVID-19 infections, but, in those infected with the virus, the rate of Cesarean delivery and preterm birth increased.



Pregnancy and perinatal outcomes of women with severe acute respiratory syndrome☆

Maternal and neonatal outcomes associated with COVID-19 infection: A systematic review

COVID-19-positive pregnant women present with fewer symptoms than the general population and may be RT-PCR negative despite having signs of viral pneumonia, according to a systematic evaluation of the literature.

Novel coronavirus disease 2019 and perinatal outcomes

Pregnant women may be more susceptible to viral respiratory infections, including COVID-19, due to immunological and physiological changes and should take routine preventive measures, such as washing their hands frequently and avoiding contact with infected people, to prevent infection.

Time Course of Lung Changes On Chest CT During Recovery From 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pneumonia

In patients recovering from COVID-19 pneumonia (without severe respiratory distress during the disease course), lung abnormalities on chest CT showed greatest severity approximately 10 days after initial onset of symptoms.

Initial CT findings and temporal changes in patients with the novel coronavirus pneumonia (2019-nCoV): a study of 63 patients in Wuhan, China

The manifestations of the novel coronavirus pneumonia are diverse and change rapidly, and Radiologists should be aware of the various features of the disease and temporal changes and strengthen the recognition of image changes to help clinicians to diagnose quickly and accurately.

CT correlation with outcomes in 15 patients with acute Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus.

CT of patients with Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus predominantly showed ground-glass opacities, with peripheral lower lobe preference, which correlates with poor prognosis and short-term mortality.

Pulmonary sequelae in convalescent patients after severe acute respiratory syndrome: evaluation with thin-section CT.

Thin-section CT scores correlated with clinical and laboratory parameters in patients after SARS, and it is concluded that ground-glass opacity and interstitial opacity resolve over time, air trapping persists.
