The association between uric acid (UA) and pre-eclampsia has been known for years, but the prognostic value of UA has been debated. This article will review recent evidences, evaluating UA as a prognostic factor for pre-eclampsia, both in the general population and in women with gestational hypertension, and as a predictor of disease severity and adverse maternal-fetal outcome. Finally, studies investigating UA as a putative pathogenic factor for pre-eclampsia are briefly mentioned.
