This study is a literature review on dermatology and pregnancy from 1962 to 2003, based on Medline database search. Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy was not included because it is not a primary dermatosis; however, its secondary skin lesions must be differentiated from specific dermatoses of pregnancy. This overview comprises clinical features and prognosis of the physiologic skin changes that occur during pregnancy; dermatoses influenced by pregnancy and the specific dermatoses of pregnancy. A discussion on drugs and pregnancy is presented at the end of this review.
