SARACENI, Valeria et al. Outcomes of Pandemic Influenza (H1N1) 2009 in women of childbearing age, in the City of Rio de Janeiro. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.4, pp.339-346. ISSN 1679-4974.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5123/S1679-49742010000400004.

OBJECTIVE: to compare the death rate among women of childbearing age during the Pandemic Influenza (H1N1) 2009 in Rio de Janeiro consideringpregnancy exposure. METHODOLOGY: confirmed cases were selected from the National Disease Reporting System (SinanWeb) of Braziis Ministry of Health, andpregnant were compared to non-pregnant women. 633 patients were included and 233 ofthem (37%) were pregnant when reported. RESULTS: seven pregnant and 22 non-pregnant women died during the flu episode, but we failed to elicit a greater risk of death among those who were pregnant (Relative Risk=0.53 [95% CI 0.22-1.27]). CONCLUSION: although no evidence of association of pregnancy and death was found, pregnant women with the new flu should be followed carefully, especially in the presence of known risk factors.
