Massive Vulvar Edema Complicating a Severe Preeclampsia with Intrauterine Fetal Death

Francky Teddy A Endomba and Jan René Nkeck

Gestational hypertensive diseases, including preeclampsia, are frequently associated to a poor prognosis when they are severe, with maternal or fetal death, and especially in low resource settings. Early recognition of severity signs can help to prevent maternal and/or fetal complications. Aside classically described signs, some others, such as vulvar edema, have been put in light through case reports and case series. Here we describe the case of a Cameroonian pregnant woman, who presented severe preeclampsia with massive vulvar edema.
