Fluconazole and risk fetal events during pregnancy

Q# 16-09: Fluconazole and Risk Fetal Events during Pregnancy

This project aims to investigate the association between use of fluconazole, a systemic azole antifungal drug treating vulvovaginal candidiasis, during pregnancy and the risk of spontaneous abortion, still birth or major birth defects/congenital malformations and under what conditions these situations occur (timing [first, second or third trimester, or throughout pregnancy], dosing [single 150 mg or less fluconazole dose, cumulative dosing]).

A full report for this query was prepared.
