Preecalmpsia is an hypertensive disease of pregnancy complicating 1-5 % of all pregnancies. Although symptomatic management has improved, there is currently no curative treatment, and only childbirth and delivery of the placenta, usually prematurely, alleviate the mother's symptoms. When preeclampsia occurs before 37 weeks of gestation expectant management is often possible in order to reduce post-natal complications related to prematurity. The management depends on the severity of the disease and gestational age. The modalities of this management are reviewed in this article.
