BADIA A, Paloma; GARCIA V, Elia; ATIENZA M, Victor  y  REYES C, Balanzá. Diabetes Insípida inducida por el embarazo o gestacional: A propósito de un caso. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2018, vol.83, n.3, pp.329-335. ISSN 0048-766X.


The incidence of diabetes insipidus during pregnancy is approximately 1 in 30,000 pregnancies.


We herein report a case of a patient with gestational diabetes insipidus occurring in our unit. We decided to communicate the case and review the literature regarding management and treatment options.

Case report:

A 38-year-old woman at 32 week of pregnancy with polyuria, polydipsia, and daily water intake of up to 7 liters. After performing the complementary tests and ruling out other more frequent conditions, the diagnosis of gestational diabetes insipidus was established.


Gestational diabetes insipidus is a very rare entity that can cause a state of intense dehydration with hypernatremia and its consequent neurological impairment. Early detection is important in order to avoid complications of both mother and fetus, as well as to carry out a multidisciplinary management of this condition.

Palabras clave : diabetes insipidus; vasopressinase; vasopressin.
