Abstract

The Alagille syndrome (AGS) is a multisystem autosomal dominant condition. In this case report, we describe a pregnant woman with this unusual disorder, in whom serial fetal sonography revealed severe pulmonary stenosis and progressively severe intrauterine growth retardation, suggesting that the fetus also had AGS, a diagnosis which was confirmed postnatally. In this report, the potential complications for pregnancy, labor and delivery when both mother and fetus are affected with AGS are described.
