About the Case Presentation

 

The management of pre-eclampsia involves careful monitoring and timely intervention to prevent complications for both the mother and the fetus. Initial management includes hospital admission for severe cases, regular monitoring of blood pressure, urine protein, and blood tests to assess kidney and liver function. Antihypertensive medications, such as labetalol or nifedipine, are used to control blood pressure, and magnesium sulfate is administered to prevent seizures. Corticosteroids may be given to accelerate fetal lung maturity if preterm delivery is anticipated. Delivery is the definitive treatment, with the timing dependent on the severity of the condition and gestational age, balancing the benefits of prolonging pregnancy against the risks of maternal and fetal complications. Postpartum follow-up is essential to monitor and manage any residual hypertension or organ dysfunction.
