Abstract
This was an open labeled clinical study to compare the lipid profile in normotensive and hypertensive pregnant women. The study included two groups-50 normotensive and 50 preeclamptic pregnant women in whom fasting blood samples were sent for estimation of serum lipid profile during their third trimester. There was a significant increase (p<0.5) in total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, VLDL cholesterol and triglycerides in preeclamptic group compared to normotensive group. There was a significant decrease in HDL cholesterol in preeclamptic group compared to normotensive group. This study in correlation with various other studies concluded that dyslipidemia plays an important role in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia.

Keywords: Lipid profile, preeclampsia, gestational hypertension
