In ­this ­paper the ­authors under­line the impor­tance of SLE in wom­en, ­above all ­those who ­become preg­nant. This ­review ­also stress­es the impor­tance of an ear­ly diag­no­sis and the ­need to ­give cor­rect infor­ma­tion to preg­nant wom­en regard­ing the pos­sible ­risks of preg­nan­cy, ­both to the mater­nal organ­ism and to the ­fetus. The ­authors ­also ­describe the ­main ­aspects of diag­no­sis and the man­age­ment of ­this par­tic­u­lar ­type of ­patient. In con­clu­sion, ­they ­affirm ­that preg­nan­cy ­should not be avoid­ed cat­e­gor­i­cal­ly, but ­that it ­should be care­ful­ly ­planned and, ­once start­ed, ­must be scru­pu­lous­ly mon­i­tored in ­view of the dete­ri­ora­tion of SLE ­caused by preg­nan­cy.
