Case Report - Late postpartum eclampsia without prodroma|
Mathew R, Raj RS, Sudha P
Late postpartum eclampsia is an increasingly recognized entity. We describe a patient who developed postpartum eclampsia on the 6th day of delivery without any preceding pre-eclampsia. A high index of suspicion and close follow-up will help in the early detection of this condition. Awareness of this condition will also save the patient from unnecessary investigations. This may be all the more relevant in developing countries where eclampsia contributes to one-third of maternal mortality and the resources for patient investigation and management are limited.
