  • CONCLUSIONS: Autoimmune CHB is a severe, potentially life-threatening disorder associated with passive transfer of maternal anti-Sjogren's syndrome A/Ro and anti-Sjogren's syndrome B/La autoantibodies. Mothers who are positive for these autoantibodies are recommended to have serial echocardiography and obstetric ultrasonography from the early second trimester. Newborns should be delivered at an early stage of gestation if there is evidence of pericardial effusion, ascites, increasing ventricular ectopy, reduced ventricular shortening fraction, or AV valve regurgitation. Aggressive medical management after birth should be coupled with pacemaker implantation in infants who do not respond to medical therapies alone.
