      Abstract

      Persistent anuria was diagnosed in a neonate born to a mother whose pregnancy was complicated by severe hypertension and systemic lupus erythematosus. Severe maternal hypertension necessitated the use of a battery of antihypertensive medications that included enalapril, an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor. The role of enalapril in neonatal renal failure is discussed. (Am J Obstet Gynecol 1989;160:1223-4.)
