Preeclampsia is most commoniy encountered problem in pregnancy. The aim of the present study was to assess the levels of beta HCG in preeclampsia and normal women without hypertension.
This was a prospective case control study undertaken on 25 preeclamptic patients and 25 healthy antenatal women in OB-GYN Department of Rajah Muthiah Medical College, Annamalai University between the periods of 2016-2018.
Result: The mean maternal serum β-human chorionic gonadotropin levels in preeclampsia were 44463.26±30595.25miu/ml that is significantly greater than normotensives (7346.200±4479.0855 of p value< 0.001). The number of complications in the preeclampsia group are increased than the normal antenatal women group.
Conclusion: Mean βhcg levels tend to be significantly more in preeclampsia than healthy pregnant mothers. The higher β hcg levels associated with more neonatal and maternal complications.
