Postpartum eclampsia is a serious and unexpected complication. A relative increase in the incidence of postpartum eclampsia has been noted in the last few years. Late postpartum eclampsia, though initially controversial, is now recognised up to four weeks after delivery. We present such a case occurring in a 26-year-old woman. This patient, who had undergone lower segment caesarean section due to pregnancy-induced hypertension, presented with typical features of postpartum eclampsia 34 days after an asymptomatic interval.
