Two cases of Takayasu's syndrome in pregnancy are presented. The obstetric courses of these women are compared with those of 7 others described in the literature. Symptoms of this rare condition may respond variably during pregnancy. Of the 9 women, 5 had worsening of their symptoms during gestation while 4 had milder symptoms than they had had prior to pregnancy. The best therapy is rest. Vaginal delivery is recommended and cesarean section should be reserved for obstetric indications. © 1977 The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
