Abstract

The present study was conducted in Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Index Medical College Indore, M.P. It is a prospective study. The cases were selected from patients who were admitted in labor room as emergency cases, irrespective of age and parity. The serum homocysteine levels were significantly higher among women with severe preeclampsia and eclampsia than mild preeclampsia and controls. In our study we have found that the incidence of poor perinatal outcome (in the form of nursery admission/IUD/SVD) were higher in pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. Those patients with increased serum homocysteine levels had higher incidence of these complications as well as of poor perinatal outcome.

Keywords: serum, homocysteine, pre-eclampsia & severity.
