Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare retrospectively the outcome of caesarean section under epidural anaesthesia with that of general anaesthesia in "stable" women with eclampsia. DESIGN: Retrospective review. METHOD: Over the five-year study period, there were 533 women with eclampsia and of these 66 women (12.4\%), fulfilled the criteria of being 'stable'. Of the 66 women, 37 received epidural, 27 general, and 2 spinal anaesthesia. RESULTS: There were no major complications with either general or epidural anaesthesia. Epidural anaesthesia was associated with higher one-minute Apgar scores. CONCLUSION: This study indicates that both maternal and neonatal outcomes are not affected adversely by the use of epidural anaesthesia in selected cases of eclampsia.
