Pre-eclampsia complicated 3-5% of first pregnancies and 1% of subsequent pregnancies with around 5-10% of cases being sever. Pre-eclampsia is progressive disorder of endothelial function that is unique to pregnancy and probably results from various micro vascular diseases, previous studies showed an association between platelets count from one side and maternal and neonatal outcome. Therefore, we conduct this study to assess compare the maternal and neonatal platelet count in severe pre- clampsia and normal pregnant women and to evaluate whether these parameters have a prognostic significance in determining maternal and neonatal outcome, a prospective comparative study was designed. Included 80 women in AL-Zahraa teaching hospital, Najaf, Iraq. Pre-eclampsia more frequent in late pregnancy and is a major cause of maternal, fetal and neonatal mortality and morbidity. Maternal and neonatal platelet count in severe pre-eclmapsia was less than in normotensive, no clinically significant change on trend in platelet count versus gestational age in severe pre-eclampsia. Low maternal platelet count in severe pre-eclampsia adversely affected maternal outcome but unrelated to fetal outcome. Further studies with larger sample size are highly suggested.
