Abstract: Pre-eclampsia is defined as development of hypertension and proteinuria (> 300mg urinary protein in 24hrs urine) after 20th week gestation. The present study aims to find correlation and usefulness of serum total calcium and uric acid level in preeclampsia. The study was conducted in Basaveshwara Medical College & Hospital from January 2014 to September 2014. Serum Calcium, Uric acid and 24 hours Urinary proteins were estimated. There was a significant decrease in Serum total calcium and increase in serum uric acid in cases of preeclampsia as compare to control group. There was a negative Correlation of serum total calcium and Positive correlation of Serum Uric acid with 24 hour Proteinuria, Systolic & Diastolic Blood Pressure. The study concluded that there was significant hypocalcaemia and hyperuricaemia associated with Preeclampsia. They have greater diagnostic and prognostic value and can be used as screening tests for early prediction of preeclampsia.
