Severe preeclampsia at <25 weeks of gestation: maternal and neonatal outcomes

American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology
Sheri M JenkinsJohn C Hauth


The purpose of this study was to determine maternal and neonatal outcomes of women who were delivered because of severe preeclampsia before 25 weeks of gestation. We used a computerized database to identify 3800 women with preeclampsia among 35,937 deliveries from 1991 to 1997. Of these, 39 women (1%) with severe preeclampsia were delivered before 25 weeks of gestation. We abstracted outcomes in these women and their newborns. All 39 women had severe preeclampsia as defined by clinical and/or laboratory criteria. Thirty-three of the 39 women had severe-range hypertension. Twenty-one women (54%) experienced morbidity that included abruptio placentae (n = 5), HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelet count) syndrome (n = 9), renal insufficiency (n = 5), and eclampsia (n = 3). No women required dialysis or intensive care unit admission, and none of the women died. All maternal morbidities reversed after delivery. Twenty-two infants (55%) were live-born. Only 4 infants (10%) survived, all with severe handicaps. In women with severe preeclampsia before 25 weeks of gestation, delivery is associated with minimal short-term maternal morbidities, although neonatal morbidity and death are appreciable.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
