Background: The state of the mother health is of great importance in the
development of children renal pathology.
Objective: To reveal macroscopic features of the fetuses and newborns kidneys of
the mothers whose pregnancy was complicated by preeclampsia.
Materials and Methods: The study involved the kidneys of 106 full-term fetuses
and newborns of mothers with physiological pregnancy, complicated pregnancy by
preeclampsia. During the autopsies, the shape, texture, surface, color were assessed
in each kidney, and then its weight, length, width and thickness were measured.
Results: The kidneys in fetuses and newborns from mothers with severe
preeclampsia were characterized by a more pronounced lobulation. In fetuses and
newborns from mothers with mild preeclampsia, the mass of the left kidney
prevailed over the mass of the right kidney. The organometric kidney values were
greater in newborns compared to fetuses in the cases of complicated by mild and
moderate preeclampsia maternal pregnancy.
Conclusion: Maternal moderate and severe preeclampsia delay renal growth in
fetuses and newborns that manifest by a reduction of the kidneys organometric
