The prognosis for children of mothers with preeclampsia: Part 2: long-term effects. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2011, vol.109, n.6, pp. 519-524.

Preeclampsia affects between 4% to 8% of all human pregnancies. It compromised both mothers and offspring beyond perinatal period. This is the second of two papers devoted to show the available evidence about the effect of preeclampsia on offsprings beyond perinatal period from cohort studies, some over 60-years follow-up. From this perspective, these children are at great risk to develop cardiovascular disorders as hypertension, as well as other disorders, as cancer or neuropsychiatric ones.
