Aim: To Study the fetal and maternal outcome in patients with eclampsia. Background: In modern Obstetrics, the prevalence of eclampsia and its complication is high, so we decided to study pregnancy outcome in all eclampsia patients. Methodology: A Retrospective study carried out in department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Bharati Medical College and Hospital, Sangli. Cases of eclampsia from May 2008 to May 2012 included in study. Analysis done regarding age of women, parity , gestational age, number of convulsion, time of convulsion, mode of delivery and fetal outcome. Results: 84.6% patients are primigravidas.88.4% came with antepartum eclampsia. Only 15.3% patients had postpartum eclampsia. Fetal outcome being intrauterine death in 46.1 % and preterm delivery in 26.9 %. Conclusion: Our observation states Antepartum eclampsia is more common in primigravidas between age group 20-25 years. With gestational age between 24-28 weeks and 32 to 36 weeks with poor fetal and maternal outcome. In our study we found all cases were unbooked and not received Antenatal care indicating the failure of adequate health care delivery in rural areas of western Maharashtra. Fetal outcome is better in patients with early intervention by lower segment caesarean section.
