What is Pre-eclampsia?

Description of the disease

Pre-eclampsia is a condition characterized by high blood pressure and the presence of protein in the urine in pregnant women. This is a dangerous complication of pregnancy that can pose a threat to the lives of both the mother and the fetus.


  • Pre-eclampsia in newborns
  • Maternal pre-eclampsia


  • Persistent headache
  • Edema
  • Abdominal pain
  • Changes in vision


The causes of pre-eclampsia are not fully understood, but it is believed to be related to the improper functioning of the placenta and vascular system disturbances.


Diagnosis is based on measuring blood pressure, analyzing urine for protein, as well as observing the symptoms of the disease.


Treatment of pre-eclampsia may include medication therapy, blood pressure control, fetal protection, and intravenous fluid administration.


Prevention includes regular visits to the doctor during pregnancy, proper nutrition, and moderate physical activity.


If pre-eclampsia is suspected, it is important to consult an obstetrician-gynecologist.
