20-22 weeks of pregnancy causing dangers to the mother and her fetus. In recent years, a lot of studies suggest that recurrent abortion is caused by the genetic factors. Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the association of the IFN- +874T/A polymorphisms and level with spontaneous abortion. Methods: The study group comprised 60 women with spontaneous abortion, and the control group consisted of 30 healthy delivered women. IFN-  Gene polymorphism was detected by ASO-PCR technique and blood level was estimated by ELISA. Results: The frequency of TT genotype (35%) and T allele (55.83%) was significant higher (P<0.05) in the abortion group than in the control group (13.33%, 35% respectively), also, IFN- level was significantly (P<0.01) higher in abortion group (8±0.4 IU/ml) than in control group (1.3±0.07 IU/ml). Conclusions: This study concluded that the IFN- +874T/A polymorphisms (TT genotype) and high IFN- level may be associated with
