Introduction:

M.A female 30 years old, second born after her brother. Her parental family was overprotective. Her mother's or father's family were free of mental illness.

Case report:

At 1998 she met a young man. Three years later they decided to get married. They both had stigma of b-thalassaimia. Those days she had her first stroke of paranoid schizophrenia (according DSM IV). She had been hospitalized for 40 days. Six months after her discharge note, continued to have symptoms (such as less concentration and side effects of antipsychotics). Then we met her. We changed her treatment into atypical antispsychotics and at the same time we psychotherapize her. We changed the treatment into aripiprazole because she gained weight. Her figure was improved more and more. At February of 2005 she has got pregnant, she had never stopped her treatment. According to her personality and psychopathology, it was sure that if we had stopped the medicine or psychotherapy she would had an abortion. Then, we continued aripiprazole.

Conclusion:

During her pregnancy nothing psychopathological happened. So she continued to work till the 36 week of her pregnancy. Her sexual and family life was very good and she gained only 7 kilogramms in her pregnancy. At the amniocentesis the fetus was negative for b-thallassaimia. After 40 weeks of pregnancy she gave birth to a healthy (goodlooking) male. After all these, the couple is very functionable and this was the aim of our trial.
