PURPOSE: To assess pregnancy and neonatal outcomes in a woman accidentally exposed to Verteporfin photodynamic therapy in the third week of pregnancy. METHODS: Post-conception counselling and prospective follow-up by telephone interview at Telefono Rosso (Teratology Information Service) were carried out. The baby was examined at birth and at 26 months. RESULTS: The outcome of the pregnancy was normal and a healthy female child with a normal birthweight was born. The baby's follow-up was normal at 26 months. CONCLUSIONS: This is the first reported case of a childbearing woman being accidentally exposed to Verteporfin during pregnancy. No fetal or neonatal adverse effects were documented.
