Abstract

Preeclampsia was found to be an important risk factor for BPD development in preterm infants. The incidence of both moderate and severe BPD was significantly higher in infants born to preeclamptic mothers. These findings might be associated with altered angiogenesis in the preeclamptic mother which might be shared by the fetus.
