Aim: To determine frequency of intrauterine growth restriction in gestational hypertension at tertiary care hospital.

Study Design: cross-sectional study.

Place and Duration of study: Department of Gynae / obs Peoples Medical University & Hospital Nawabshah, during Jan 2016 to June 2017

Methods: Total 133 patients were included in this study. .All the multiparous women presented with pregnancy induced hypertension were included in this study and were assessed by ultrasound examination. After taking detail history, proforma were filled accordingly.

Results:-The average age of the patients was 30.95±3.64 years. Frequency of IUGR in gestational   hypertension was found in 25.56% (34/133).

Conclusion:  We conclude that pregnancy induced hypertension plays a significant role in IUGR. Unluckily no treatment is available to prevent and reverse the pathophysiologic events associated with pre-eclampsia, and also no effective treatment of intrauterine growth restriction is currently available. Hence early recognition of high risk women having pre-eclampsia and providing intensive antenatal care will be beneficial.

Keywords: Intrauterine fetal growth restriction, Pregnancy induced hypertension, pre-eclampsia.
