syndromes with no adverse effects on the infants.
Description of 214 cases of autoimmune congenital heart block: Results of the french neonatal lupus
erythematosus (NLE) is an uncommon and often undiagnosed disease resulting from the trans-placental passage of maternal antinuclear antibodies (ANA) and extractable nuclear antigen (ENA) antibodies to the foetus.

erythematosus as a cause of neonatal congenital complete heart block in babies born of yet asymptomatic mothers.

* Neonatal lupus

Systemic lupus erythematosus can become exacerbated during pregnancy, and is associated with significant maternal and fetal morbidity, including spontaneous miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, intrauterine growth retardation, fetal death, and preterm delivery.34 Neonatal lupus
is a rare disease that can occur in neonates born to women with SLE, and is associated with serious heart problems in the babies and anti-Ro and anti-La autoantibodies in the women's blood.
