Abstract

Transient diabetes insipidus (DI), a rare complication of pregnancy, results from excessive activity of placental vasopressinase. If unrecognized, it may threaten the life of both mother and fetus. Here we report a case of 33 year-old women with a twin pregnancy and transient diabetes insipidus, believed to be due to increased vasopressin degradation rate. The purpose of this case report is to reassess gestational DI and to discuss its appropriate management.
