Management of ischemic heart disease in pregnant women is still difficult, as there is little experience with many of the newer treatments such as clopidogrel. The safety of clopidogrel in pregnancy is unknown, especially in combination with aspirin. Its use during gestation has been described in a few case reports. We describe the case of a 36-year-old woman in her 9th week of pregnancy with a history of chronic hypertension, dyslipidemia and CAD, who required antiplatelet treatment. Clopidogrel and aspirin were administrated until one week before delivery and a healthy child was born at 36 weeks of pregnancy by caesarean section, without any complication.
