Greetings from Crete. ... I have a patient who while he was taking MTX (methotrexate) for rheumatoid arthritis his wife became pregnant. How I could best advice him regarding the continuation or not of pregnancy?
Presently there is no evidence to suggest that your patient has an increased teratogenic risk for the offspring. Depending on the age of his wife, amniocentesis may be considered (above 35 yrs of age). We would also suggest a detailed level 2 ultrasound just to rule out visualized malformations(not caused by his exposure).
