Abstract AIM: The aim of this study was to establish influence of cervical deciduosis on pregnancy and time and route of delivery. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 28 pregnant women with diagnosis of cervical deciduosis. We followed progress of pregnancy, genital bleeding manifestation and time and route of delivery. RESULTS: We found that 90\% of cervical deciduosis cases were diagnosed in the first half of pregnancy. 71.4\% were diagnosed after they completed 12 gestational weeks. In case of disruption of deciduosis foci, because of trauma or infection, bleeding occurs. Four of pregnancies were terminated before 28 weeks gestation (14.3\%)--two of them miscarriages, one cessation of pregnancy because of polymalformative fetus and one with Cesarean Section. Five of the pregnancies ended in preterm deliveries (17.9\%)--three vaginal deliveries and two Cesarean Sections. Nineteen cases ended in term deliveries (67.8\%)--seventeen vaginal deliveries and two Cesarean Sections. DISCUSSION: In cases with cervical deciduosis we found increase in preterm rupture of membranes. For this reason these patients have increased risk for miscarriage and preterm delivery.
