Abstract

Chorea gravidarum is the term given to chorea occurring during pregnancy. It is not an etiologically or pathologically distinct morbid entity, but a generic term for chorea of any etiology. We report a case of Chorea Gravidarum who doesn’t have the past h/o Rheumatic fever, Sydenham’s chorea in childhood. Factors associated with recurrence of chorea, their aggrevating factors during pregnancy and its management have been discussed.
