Pre-eclampsia is the abnormality of blood circulation in late pregnancy, often caused by renal failure, hemolysis, elevated liver enzyme, low platelet syndrome, and eclampsia. We present a case of severe pre-eclampsia with placental abruption in a 24-year-old woman, pregnant for the first time. The patient was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, which came as a result of pre-eclampsia. Anti-hypertensive drugs were used for its treatment.
