Asthma and, in a smaller frequency, pneumonia are the most common pulmonary diseases associated with pregnancy. Tuberculosis is quite rare at pregnant women. The diagnosis of these pulmonary diseases during pregnancy is not always easy. The normal biological changes that take place while childbearing make the diagnosis difficult to achieve. Medical history, clinical findings and specialized case specific paraclinical examination contribute decisively to the diagnostic approach of pulmonary diseases upon pregnant women. In the current article, based on the systematic citation of the modern literature references, a brief review of asthma, pneumonia and tuberculosis during pregnancy is attempted, mostly related to the current diagnostic approach, the proper knowledge of which is able to ensure the utmost possible prognostic outcome for both the mother and the embryo – newborn.

Keywords: Asthma, Pneumonia, Tuberculosis, Diagnosis, Pregnancy.
