Were you looking for information about Preeclampsia? Pre-eclampsia is a common misspelling of preeclampsia.
Women who develop preeclampsia during pregnancy may have symptoms such as high blood pressure, swelling in the hands and face, and protein in the urine. Preeclampsia is a condition that only occurs during pregnancy and results when there is a narrowing of the blood vessels. This causes decreased blood flow to the kidneys, brain, liver, retina, and placenta. The only way to cure the condition is to deliver the fetus.
