Preeclampsia is a multisystem disorder occurring after the 20th week of gestation and is characterized by hypertension, proteinuria, and pathologic edema. Eclampsia is defined as the occurrence of generalized seizures in a woman with preexisting preeclampsia. The onset of eclamptic convulsions can be antepartum, intrapartum, postpartum, or late postpartum. Reduction in eclampsia can be achieved by good prenatal care, early detection of preeclampsia, and prophylactic use of magnesium sulfate in preeclampsia.
