    Abstract

    A case of human placental lactogen (hPL) deficiency together with normal oestriol levels associated with a normal pregnancy in a woman in her second pregnancy is reported. The woman gave birth to a healthy male infant. The placenta was normal. Extremely low hPL levels may be compatible with the delivery of a healthy infant.
