Early onset preeclampsia is seen prior to 34 weeks of gestation, where there is a careful balance between foetal lung maturation and maternal complications. Hence, this study aimed at studying the maternal and foetal outcomes in early onset preeclampsia. Methods: 100 patients who met the inclusion criteria were included in the study (ages 18-35, with new onset of preeclampsia between 20-34 weeks of pregnancy). Detailed history, examination and investigations were done. Details regarding the treatment and the mode of termination are noted. Results: in 100 patients, 72% were primigravida. The most common age group was 21-30 years, with 45% belonging to this group. In 86.2%, maternal causes were the most common indication for the termination of pregnancy. Of these, 68.4% had ceasarian section, while the remaining underwent vaginal delivery. Out of 98 babies 60 (60%) had complications. There were 16 neonatal deaths and 4 still birth with perinatal mortality rate of 20%. 38 (38%) women of the total study group complication. There were 6 (6%) maternal death.
