ABSTRACTMultiple (triple) pregnancies is rare (1 %), although its incidence has increased in the last 15 years due to the use of ovulation induction and the development of in vitro fertilization techniques and embryo transfer (5 and 35 %). These pregnancies continually involve a concern for the obstetrician due to maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality, mainly due to prematurity. The objective of this paper is to present three cases of pregnant women with triple and favorable pregnancy, occurring from 2010 to 2011. Literature on the subject was reviewed. The clinical features of this pregnancy complications, management and prognosis are briefly described. Significant elements of these patients are then described. They were treated at the "Dr. Julio R. Alfonso Medina" Teaching Hospital in Matanzas. Preterm cesarean delivery is frequent. Comments on the cases with opinions of the revised authors and the authors of the article.
