Abstract

Early-onset pre-eclampsia and late-onset pre-eclampsia, by virtue of their unpredictable nature and prediliction for multi-organ involvement, are associated with substantial maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Recent years have seen the introduction of the concepts of care in specialized units, expectant management of pre-eclampsia, conservative management of the HELLP syndrome (haemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets), usage of magnesium sulphate and improved feto-maternal surveillance. It is important to note that these factors also influence maternal and neonatal outcome.
