Abstract: Chorea Gravidarum (CG) is the generic term used for chorea of any etiology occurring during pregnancy and it is a rare syndrome in pregnancy. The clinical picture is of extrapyramidal symptoms such as involuntary movements, lack of coordination and slurred speech. Neuroleptics or benzodiazepines can be used for treatment. Factors associated with recurrence of chorea; those aggravating chorea during pregnancy, fetal outcome and its management have been discussed. We present a case of chorea gravidarum in association with acute rheumatic fever.
