Fever in pregnancy and risk of fetal death: a cohort study
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Hyperthermia acts as a teratogen in some animals where it can induce resorption of the fetus and fetal death. Fever during pregnancy, especially in the period of embryogenesis, is also suspected as being a risk factor for fetal death in human beings. We did a large cohort study in Denmark to investigate this possibility.
