Eclampsia is a life-threatening emergency that continues to be a major cause of serious maternal morbidity and is still the leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide. Complicated and mismanaged cases are responsible for many maternal deaths. Perinatal morbidity and mortality is also high if eclampsia occurs in the antepartum period. This article reviews eclampsia management with special emphasis on puerperal eclampsia. The complications associated with eclampsia are also discussed.
