Second trimester medical abortion in a primigravida with lupus nephritis and rapidly progressive renal failure: challenges and outcome: The European Journal of Contraception & Reproductive Health Care: Vol 26, No 2


In the second trimester, medical abortion is preferred as it is less invasive, and the surgical method carries more risk. There is a paucity of published literature on medical abortion in women with renal failure requiring haemodialysis. We came across a woman who presented with rapidly progressive renal failure at 18 weeks of gestation and required therapeutic abortion. We are reporting the challenges, outcomes, and precautions to be taken while performing a medical abortion in such a case.
