Atypical HUS (aHUS) is a disorder most commonly caused by inherited defects of the alternative pathway of complement, or the proteins that regulate this pathway, and life-threatening episodes of aHUS can be provoked by pregnancy. We retrospectively and prospectively investigated 27 maternal and fetal pregnancy outcomes in 14 women with aHUS from the Vienna Thrombotic Microangiopathy Cohort. Seven pregnancies (26%) were complicated by pregnancy-associated aHUS (p-aHUS), of which three appeared to be provoked by infection, bleeding, and curettage, and three individuals were considered to have preeclampsia/HELLP syndrome before the definitive diagnosis of p-aHUS was made. Mutations in genes that encode the complement alternative pathway proteins or the molecules that regulate this pathway were detected in 71% of the women, with no relationship to pregnancy outcome. Twenty-one pregnancies (78%) resulted in a live birth, two preterm infants were stillborn, and four pregnancies resulted in early spontaneous abortions. Although short-term renal outcome was good in most women, long-term renal outcome was poor; among the 14 women, four had CKD stage 1-4, five had received a renal allograft, and three were dialysis-dependent at study end. We prospectively followed nine pregnancies of four women and treated six of these pregnancies with prophylactic plasma infusions (one pregnancy resulted in p-aHUS, one intrauterine fetal death occurred, and seven pregancies were uneventful). Our study emphasizes the frequency of successful pregnancies in women with aHUS. Close monitoring of such pregnancies for episodes of thrombotic microangiopathy is essential but, the best strategy to prevent these episodes remains unclear.
非典型 HUS (aHUS) 是一种最常见的由补体替代途径的遗传缺陷引起的疾病，或调节该途径的蛋白质, 怀孕可能会引发危及生命的 aHUS 事件。我们回顾性和前瞻性地调查了维也纳血栓性微血管病队列中 14 例 aHUS 妇女的 27 例母体和胎儿妊娠结果。七次妊娠 (26%) 合并了妊娠相关的 aHUS (p-aHUS)，其中三次似乎是由感染、出血和刮宫引起的, 在确诊 p-aHUS 之前，有三个人被认为患有先兆子痫/HELLP 综合征。71% 的女性检测到编码补体替代途径蛋白或调节该途径的分子的基因突变，与妊娠结果无关。21 例妊娠 (78%) 导致活产，2 例早产儿死产，4 例妊娠导致早期自然流产。虽然大多数妇女的短期肾脏结果良好，但长期肾脏结果较差; 在这 14 名妇女中，4 名妇女处于慢性肾脏病 1-4 期，5 名妇女接受了同种异体肾移植, 三个在研究结束时依赖透析。我们对四名女性的九次怀孕进行了前瞻性跟踪，并对其中六次怀孕进行了预防性血浆输注治疗 (一次怀孕导致 p-aHUS，一次宫内胎儿死亡，七次怀孕顺利进行)。我们的研究强调 aHUS 女性成功怀孕的频率。对此类妊娠的血栓性微血管病变发作进行密切监测是至关重要的，但预防这些发作的最佳策略仍不清楚。
