Show Summary Details


A 29-year-old lawyer, 16 weeks pregnant, presented with cough, wheeze and dyspnoea on exertion; she had also required antibiotics for repeated chest infections and lost 15kg in weight since her previous pregnancy 2 years previously. At that time she had been diagnosed with asthma when she also had shortness of breath. This had responded well to salbutamol and beclomethasone and, in retrospect, there had been previous episodes of self-limiting cough and wheeze over several years.
