In brief: Pityriasis Rosea(PR)
Investigators in italy examined 38 women who developed pr during pregnancy.
Of these women, five miscarried (13%), but the miscarriage rate was 62% in those who developed pr in the first 15 weeks of pregnancy. Hypotonia and weak motion were common in the infants of women who developed pr between 16 and 20 weeks’ gestation; only 33% of these pregnancies produced healthy infants at delivery.
