Introduction: Pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) accounts for 5% of pregnancies and is a major contributor to high perinatal morbidity and mortality (1). According to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the hypertension in pregnancy is considered as sustained systolic blood pressure of greater than 140 mm Hg and diastolic greater than 90 mm Hg in a previously normotensive woman (2). The onset of signs and symptoms of pregnancy induced hypertension usually occur after 20 weeks of gestation. American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists defined preeclampsia as pregnancy induced hypertension accompanied with renal involvement and proteinuria (.
