Abstract
The classic indication for prescribing dietary sodium restriction in pregna ncy has been the prevention of eclampsia, We describe a case of intrapartum eclampsia in a 24-year-old nulliparous woman. A strongly sodium restricted diet was prescibed because of pre-eclampsia, Compliance to the diet was ch ecked with 24-hour urinary sodium excretion. This report, describing the fi rst case of eclampsia despite neglectable urinary sodium excretion, adds to the view that sodium restriction in pregnancy is obsolete. Copyright (C) 2 001 S.
