Hypertension in pregnancy represents a spectrum of clinical entities, including pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH), preeclampsia, eclampsia, and hemolysis, elevated liver enzyme levels, low platelet count syndrome. Although hypertension is a common denominator in this group of disorders, the pathogenesis, clinical features, and clinical course of these disorders is variable and somewhat distinct. Therapy must be tailored to the clinical entity and the patient. The incidence and prevalence of preeclampsia and eclampsia is decreasing worldwide. This decrease partly may be caused by the improved treatment of PIH and improved obstetrical services.
