Formatted abstract
Acute Q fever in pregnancy is uncommon, but is probably underrecognized. It
results in a significant risk of adverse pregnancy outcome and also predisposes
to the development of chronic Q fever in the mother. Here, we review the
clinical features, epidemiology, treatment and follow-up of acute Q fever in
pregnancy. The potential for transmission of Coxiella to the neonate and
birthing suite staff will also be highlighted.
