Abstract

Three cases of acute renal insufficiency in pregnant women who were treated with indomethacin for premature labor are reported. At the time of presentation, all three women had normal renal function but within 30 hours of indomethacin therapy they were noted to have significant decreases in urine output and rising serum creatinines. The average time to recovery of renal function was 5 days. A consistent feature in all three women was the development of dyspnea associated with hypoxemia.
