Scleroderma is a connective tissue disorder identified with skin thickening and fibrosis together with inflammatory, vascular, and internal organ changes. The prevalence of this condition is three times higher in women than in men. Pregnancy was known to threaten maternal and fetal health in patients with scleroderma. Today, however, the patients have the chance of a successful pregnancy through careful and appropriate planning, monitoring, and treatment methods. Nevertheless, in order to prevent pregnancy complications in patients with scleroderma, pregnancy has to be planned during the stable phase of the disease and not during its rapid progression course. In this article we reported a pregnancy out come in a woman with scleroderma and polymyositis and explained its emergent procedures and treatment.
