Caption: Pregnancy related disorder. Close-up of the foot of a pregnant woman affected by a pitting oedema, an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the tissues. Swollen ankles are common during the second half of pregnancy, expecially during the evening, and are probably linked to the increased level of oestrogen hormones.
