I have a question regarding follow up care for the infants born to mothers with pemphigoid gestationis. I had a very severe case of PG during the 2nd trimester of my 1st pregnancy. I was on 100mg of prednisone to try to get a handle on the fast progression. My son was born 2 weeks early with fetal growth retardation, weighing 2 lbs. He was placed on steroids as well. What are the long-term side effects for the infants? At the age of 32, he found out he was sterile. I cannot find ANY research on the children born to the women of this rare disease. Does anyone know who I can contact to ask about this? Click here for answer
