Human granulocytic anaplasmosis during pregnancy: Case series and literature review
Infectious Disease Transmission, Vertical
Pregnancy Complications, Infectious
We describe the clinical and laboratory manifestations and pregnancy outcomes of 6 women who received a diagnosis of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis during pregnancy. Human granulocytic ehrlichiosis did not seem to present in a fulminant fashion, and all treated patients had excellent responses to rifampin or doxycycline therapy. Perinatal transmission was documented in 1 neonate, who responded well to treatment. There do not appear to be any long-term adverse sequelae in children born from these pregnancies (mean follow-up duration, 21 months).
