Abstract Objective: To analyze the effect, if any, of pregnancy-related hypertension on the pancreas. Methods: A database of pregnant women with hyperbilirubinemia was reviewed for cases with serum amylase values. These cases were linked to a computerized obstetric database, and women were analyzed according to the diagnosis of preeclampsia. Results: A total of 292 consecutive women with hyperbilirubinemia during pregnancy delivered at our institution between 2005 and 2011. Of these, 52 (18%) were diagnosed with preeclampsia, and in only nine was serum amylase abnormally elevated. Conclusion: Using serum analytes as surrogates for organ injury, it appears preeclampsia infrequently affects the pancreas.
