Abstract

Background: Eclampsia affects 5 to 10% of all pregnancies and contributes to 10 to 15% of maternal deaths worldwide. Estimated case fatality rate due to eclampsia is 14 times higher in developing countries compared to developed countries. Eclampsia is a potentially fatal disorder of pregnant women and it remains an important cause of maternal mortality throughout the world, accounting for about 50, 000 deaths worldwide. Therefore Obstetricians and perinatal nurses in every facility must be familiar with the diagnosis and management of this complication of pregnancy.
