Human chorionic somatomammotropin (hCS) is important in the hormonal monitoring of human pregnancies [fetal well-being and placental function evaluation]. Presented is the case of a clinically normal pregnancy in which a very low plasma level of hCS was detected. The concentration of mRNA coding for hCS was evaluated to determine the level on which the deficiency occurred.
