Background:  eclampsia continues to be a major obstetric emergency particularly in developing countries such as India and is a major contributor to maternal and perinatal mortality hence the importance of continued effort in monitoring and reviewing each eclamptic patient and to analyse factors affecting the maternal and fetal outcome.
Aim & Objective: To study the Maternal and perinatal outcome in eclampsia patients and the various factors associated with occurrence and complication of eclampsia.
Material and Method: The present study was a prospective study. A total number of 130 patients of tonic-clonic convulsion with pregnancy diagnosed as eclampsia were included in the study. All eclamptic patients either antepartum, intrapartum or postpartum were included in the study irrespective of their age, gestational age, parity and status of booking on admission.
Results: During the study period incidence of eclampsia at our Centre was .82%. Total maternal death due to eclampsia was 8 and perinatal death was 49. It is concluded that good antenatal care, timely identification of signs and symptoms of pre-eclampsia intensive monitoring, earlier and meticulous termination of pregnancy can help in improving maternal and fetal outcome in eclampsia patients.
