Serious morbidity or death from swine influenza infection is unusual in the immunocompetent host. We present a fatal case of pneumonia caused by this virus in a previously healthy 32-year-old woman during her third trimester of pregnancy, and review all published case reports of swine influenza in United States civilians. Pregnancy may be a predisposing factor to fulminant infection with swine influenza virus.
