ABSTRACT: The effect of maternal use of colchicine on fetuses is unknown. The children of 116 women with Familial Mediterranean Fever (225 completed pregnancies) were studied. There was no unusual frequency of fetal abnormality among women taking colchicine before or during pregnancy. Colchicine treatment does not apparently harm mother or child.
