A total of 78 patients with toxemia pregnancy were treated for over a week before delivery. The treatment was characterized by (1) mental and physical rest, (2) disuse of hypotonic, diuretic, and antispasmodic agents, and (3) a diet with reduced salt and energy (200-1200 Cal/day). Except for one fetal death, which occurred during delivery, all mothers and their babies left the hospital in good condition. No fetal or neonatal deaths that were related to the maternal condition or severity of toxemia were encountered. The long-lasting complications of toxemia were lower than those reported by others. No critical accident was noted. Our treatment proved to be efficient in the treatment of toxemia.
