: The Proper Treatment Of Mood Disorders Occurring During Pregnancy Is A Major Therapeutic Problem Since No Antidepressant Medications Have Been Established As Safe For The Developing Fetus. Several Double-blind Placebo-controlled Studies Have Explored The Efficacy Of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) In Depression. CASE: We Report The Case Of A 36-year-old Woman In Her Second Trimester Of Pregnancy, Whose Depression (DSM-IV) And Anxiety Were Successfully Treated With RTMS. Further Studies Of RTMS In Depressed Pregnant Women Appear Warranted.
