OBJECTIVE: To determine the perinatal results obtained in patients with a severe pre-eclampsia. METHODS: A retrospective and descriptive study was conducted on the perinatal results obtained in patients with a severe pre-eclampsia in the "Eusebio Hernández" Gynecology-Obstetrics Teaching Hospital from January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2008. Work universe included the total of puerperants and the sample included 61 patients admitted in the perinatal care service diagnosed with severe pre-eclampsia. Following variables were studied: cause of original severe cesarean section, mother mortality, perinatal morbidity and perinatal mortality. With the previous informed consent a survey was made including the study variables by systematic sampling. Also, we analyzed the patient's medical records. RESULTS: The greater figure of original cesarean section was due to poor cervical conditions with the 18.03 %, the greater and predominant mother morbidity was the hyaline membrane disease and another late due to sepsis. CONCLUSIONS: The greater number of births was by original cesarean section due to the poor cervical conditions. The main mother morbidity was the postpartum hemorrhage; the infection and hyaline membrane disease had the higher percentage of perinatal mortality and morbidity.
