ABSTRACT Background: To study hypertension induced by pregnancy and neonatal outcomes. Materials & methods: A total of 200 premature newborns of gestational age (GA) between 20 and 35 weeks and 5 days, born alive were included. In total, 90 infants were born to hypertensive mothers (G1) and 110 to normotensive mothers (G2). The data was recorded. The results were analysed using SPSS software. Results: The anthropometric measurements of birth weight were significantly lower in G1. Resuscitation in the delivery room and the need to use surfactant and oxygen dependence at 36 weeks of gestational age did not differ between groups. Conclusion: There was no difference in weight and survival at 18 months of chronological age.
