Abstract

Toxemia of pregnancy is a disease that seriously endangers the health of expectant mothers (Stembera, 1976). When toxemia has proceeded to preeclampsia and eclampsia, the health and lives of both the mothers and their infants are threatened. In order to ascertain the status of children born of these mothers, the development of 158 children was investigated. In addition, another 120 cases of normally delivered children were randomly selected as controls. All of the children were between 18 months and 61/2 years of age.
