Pregnancy complications are bothersome entities leading to maternal and neonatal mortality. These complications may be prevented with recognition of at risk population including diabetic or hypertensive women and low birth weight and premature newborns. However, there is no definite laboratory method. Hence in this study the association of triple test results with pregnancy outcomes in mothers andnewborns were evaluated. Current study was performed as prospective cohort. Onehundred and six pregnant women with gestational ages from 16th to 20th weeks attending to a training hospital in Tehran, Iran since January 2010 to January 2012 were recruited. In this study four newborns (3.8%) were preterm and one newborn (0.9%) died. Two cases of preeclampsia (1.9%), four cases of LBW (3.8%), one caseof placental abruption (0.9%), and six cases of premature rupture of membranes (5.7%) were seen. There was no significant association between triple test results and pregnancy complications in mothers and newborns (P > 0.05). As a result it may be concluded that triple test has no obvious statistically significant association withpregnancy outcomes and complications.
