Pre-eclampsia is a major cause of perinatal and maternal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although knowledge of the precise aetiology remains uncertain a number of risk factors have been described. Thrombophilias have been associated with pre-eclampsia in a number of studies and it is biologically plausible that they may contribute to the uteroplacental thrombosis that is frequently seen in pre-eclampsia. If this association is confirmed, there is the potential to investigate preventive treatments, including low-molecular-weight heparins, aspirin and folate.
