Preeclampsia and eclampsia

The hallmark of pre-eclampsia is hypertension with proteinuria. It is considered mild if proteinuria is 0.25-2g/l and severe if >2g/l. Eclampsia is the same condition associated with seizures. They are associated with cerebral oedema and, in some cases, haemorrhage. A reduced plasma volume, raised peripheral resistance and disseminated intravascular coagulation all impair tissue perfusion, with possible renal and hepatic failure. Pulmonary oedema may occur secondary to increased peripheral resistance and low colloid osmotic pressure.
