Specialty: OB/Gyn, General
In kidney transplant patients who become pregnant, the immunosuppressive drugs necessary to prevent rejection of the kidney cross the placenta and enter the fetal circulation during development of the baby's endocrine and immune systems. The neonatal period and childhood health appear to be normal in most offspring, but there is little information about their long-term health. This is a questionnaire survey of daughters of kidney transplant patients to investigate whether they have remained healthy and to identify any unrecognized health or reproductive problems.
