PMID: 36467289.


Preeclampsia is currently defined as new-onset hypertension occurring with significant proteinuria, maternal organ dysfunction, and/or placental insufficiency at or after 20 weeks of gestation. In the majority of cases, it occurs before 48 h postpartum. Therefore, preeclampsia occurring before 20 weeks of gestation or after 48 h postpartum is atypical and may not be easily diagnosed.
