Excerpt
Toxaemia of pregnancy is an important problem in antenatal care: it is common, its etiology is largely unknown, and it is connected with increased morbidity and mortality in infants and mothers. Today, many experts reject the whole concept of toxaemia and divide it into several diseases and symptoms. I use the concept as it was commonly used in the 1960s and 1970s: when a pregnant woman had hypertension, proteinuria and/or oedema, she was said to have toxaemia. Toxaemia was divided in two main categories: (1) pre-eclampsia and eclampsia, and (2) chronic hypertensive and renal diseases. In this article the interest is in pre-eclampsia.
