Abstract

Pre-eclampsia is a misnomer. It should actually be called EPH GESTOSIS according to the Organisation Gestosis of Switzerland whereby E stands for Edema, P stands for Proteinuria and H for Hypertension. Prim gravidity is a major risk factor. EPH GESTOSIS adversely affects foetal outcome. The rate of stillbirths is directly proportional and Apgar score as well as foetal weight is inversely proportional to the degree of severity of EPH GESTOSIS.
