Abstract: Preeclampsia was identified in 1, 46,320 women or 3.7% of all pregnancies that ended in live births. Berg and colleagues (1996) reported almost 18% of 1450 maternal deaths in United States 1987 to 1990 were complications of pregnancy related hypertension. The syndrome complex of pre-eclampsia and fetal growth restriction have similar pathology of placental insufficiency. Here the blood supply to the fetus is inadequate because of defective placentation which can be part of syndrome of pre-eclampsia or can individually lead to defective growth of the baby i.e. small for gestational age baby. An observational study was done over a period of one year among women attending the out-patient department for antenatal care at Medical College and Hospital. About 52% of women are in the age group 21-30 years and 46% belong to teenage group. Mean gestation age at transvaginal USG is 14+1 and at transabdominal USG is 24+6 weeks.
