Abstract

Preeclampsia is the complex disorder characterized by hypertension and proteinuria. Preeclampsia if complicated can progress to eclampsia, endangering life of both mother and fetus. Eclampsia occurring during delivery is referred as intrapartum eclampsia. Few studies have been conducted on intrapartum eclampsia, as it is less frequent in developed countries due to the availability of better health care facilities and awareness. Here we report a case series of patients presented with intrapartum eclampsia presented at a tertiary care hospital.
