• Six women developed De Quervain's tenosynovitis during pregnancy. Onset was never before the fifth month. Two patients also had carpal tunnel syndrome. In two otherwise untreated patients, tendinitis resolved only after discontinuation of nursing. We discuss the possibility of association with hormonal changes occurring during pregnancy.
