Pregnancy is a physiological process in women but it may be associated with certain risks to the health and life of both the mother and child. Hypertensive disorders complicating pregnancy are common and form one of the deadly triad along with hemorrhage and infection that results in maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Pregnancy can induce hypertension in normotensive women or aggravate already existing hypertension or appears for the first time during pregnancy. The identification of this clinical entity and effective management play a significant role in the outcome of pregnancy, both for the mother and the baby. In the developing countries with uncared pregnancy, this entity on many occasions remains undetected till major complications supervene.
