Background: Severe preeclampsia is a critical situation which endangers the life of the mother &/or the fetus through decreasing the blood flow to the placenta leading to slow growth, growth retardation, Low birth weight, preterm birth & breathing difficulties to the new born; placental abruption & heavy bleeding, HELLP syndrome (Hemolysis, Elevated Liver Enzymes & Low Platelet count), Eclampsia (preeclampsia plus seizures), cerebrovascular stroke or hemorrhage, pulmonary oedema, renal failure, liver failure, disseminated intravascular coagulopathy & it may end by death.The aim of this study was to compare low dose Combined spinal epidural & conventional epidural anesthesia for elective cesarean section in patients with severe pre-eclampsia as regards safety, efficacy & the best outcome. Methods: Our study included sixty patients with severe preeclampsia undergoing elective cesarean section and they were divided into two groups with thirty patients in each group; GroupI received low dose combined spinal epidural anesthesia under aseptic precautions using 7mg 0.5 %heavy bupivacaine with 25micograms fentanyl intrathecal and incremental doses of 3-5 ml plain bupivacaine in the epidural catheter after10-15 minutes of the intrathecal injection while patients in group II received conventional epidural anesthesia using 16ml 0.5 % plain bupivacaine (after 4ml of lidocaine2 % as a test dose) the 16ml of plain bupivacine 0.5 % were given over 3minutes. Results: In our study, there was no statistical significant difference between the two studied groups regarding the mean arterial pressure, the heart rate & the oxygen saturation (SaO2) of the mother & the umbilical card measurements and APGAR score of the fetus at different time points. Conclusion: The use of low dose combined spinal epidural anesthesia for elective cesarean section in patients with severe pre-eclampsia is as safe, efficient with the same good outcome to the mother & the fetus as conventional epidural anesthes
