Nevertheless, advances in it and deepening in its clinical manifestations, presentation ways and diagnostic elements have allowed its precocious recognition and diagnostic elements, causing changes from its definition up to its treatment, mainly in the case of the hypertensive disorders type I. In the current article, the authors put at reach of the medical community a wide scientific review facilitating a better diagnosis of preeclampsia and other forms of arterial hypertension in the pregnancy-puerperal stage that will contribute to reducing diagnosis error and making an early intervention, leading to better maternal and perinatal results.
