In brief: Rare complications

If i remember correctly, mothers sle antibodies cross the placenta & can cause transient skin, lung &r nervous system problems.
A potentially more serious problem occurs with the heart & can produce abnormal heart rhythm disturbances or damage to the heart itself. If severe it could be fatal, some require a pacemaker.
