Early diagnosis and treatment of preeclampsia could have a substantial impact on maternal, fetal and infant health. The aim of this study is to carry out an overall study of preeclampsia and its complications on the birth weight and gestational age in the case and control groups. 400 pregnant mothers referring to Imam Khomeini Hospital of Ahvaz are investigated. The study is conducted as retrospective review of patient’s records with a focus on the goals and variables. The obtained data are analyzed by the descriptive statistics and statistical tests. There is a significant relationship between preeclampsia and birth weight in term and preterm labor (P<0.0001). There is no significant relationship between preeclampsia and birth weight and term labor but this relationship has been significant in preterm labor (P<0.0001). Preeclampsia is a heterogeneous disorder that limits the fetal growth and could also be followed by normal fetal growth. Therefore patients with restricted fetal growth will have preterm labor and the presence of preeclampsia is an exacerbating factor in this process. In cases of term labor of preeclampsia patients the fetal growth is more appropriate and the birth weight is relatively higher and closer to the normal range.
