Objective. To observe the influence of preeclampsia during pregnancy. Materials and methods. 5711 patient’s records of the year 2008 and 6188 patient’s records of the year 2009 of Obstetric/Gynecologic hospital ‘Queen Geraldina’ have been consulted. The age of women that we studied in 2008 was between 23-35 and in 2009 was between 25-34 years old. We have made a careful diagnose of inducted hypertension of pregnancy and preeclampsia. Results. The incidence of preeclampsia in the population was 4.1% (n =238) in 2008 and 3.1% (n=192) in 2009. The incidence of the cases that developed from preeclampsia to eclampsia were respectively 1.6% (n=4) and 1.5% (n=3) on 2009. Babies which have preeclamptic mothers were preterm in 13% (n=31) of cases, and 14.5% (n=28) of which have severe hypotrophia vs. 10% (n=24) and 11% (n=21) severe hypotrophia in 2009. Babies mortality on the preeclamptic population were respectively 8% (n=19) and 7.8% (n=15). Conclusions. From the survey resulted that patients diagnosed with preeclampsia manifested on a high rate hypertension and proteinuria. Prematurity, severe hypotrophy and baby’s mortality were the major complications of preeclampsia. Women with preeclampsia were especially the youngest.
