RETAMAL C, Pedro  y  CANTILLANO A, Vanessa. Treatment with lithium of a pregnant patient with a bipolar disorder. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2001, vol.129, n.5, pp.556-560. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872001000500013.

We report a 37 years old woman with a severe bipolar disorder, that became pregnant during treatment with lithium. The patient and her family were informed about the 0.05-0.1% risk of cardiac malformations of the newborn, but decided to maintain her pregnancy and not to discontinue the use of lithium, fearing a relapse of her psychiatric ailment. She continued under medical surveillance and had a normal delivery, but no breast feeding was allowed (Rev Med Chile 2001; 129: 556-60)

Palabras clave : Bipolar disorder; Lithium; Pregnancy complications.
