The effect of diagnostic or therapeutic administration of the main hormones or endocrine modifiers on the mother and foetus during pregnancy was examined. Thyroid: medical treatment appeared to be more effective than surgical treatment. Pancreas: oral antidiabetics should not be prescribed during pregnancy. Stylbenes: these present a high risk of foetal tumour. Oestroprogestins: their therapeutic effect in threatened abortion has not been demonstrated. In habitual miscarriage, they have a slight teratogenic tendency. Corticoids: useful in the induction of lung 'maturation'.
