Cystic fibrosis is one of the most serious genetic disorders. The survival and the quality of life of our patients have also been improved in the last decade. The number of patients entering the reproductive age is increasing. The young women in good somatic condition may undertake pregnancy. The desire for a full life and for a child may arise at patients with respiratory insufficiency too. Authors list the maternal and fetal risks of the pregnancy in cystic fibrosis by a case report. As a result of multidisciplinary team work a boy was born. The mother died in progressive and uninfluencable respiratory insufficiency being on waiting-list for lung transplantation 15 months after the delivery.
