      Abstract

      An analysis is presented of 56 cases of eclampsia treated with a “lytic cocktail” in the Concepción Palacios Maternity in Caracas. The effects of this medication on the number of convulsions, blood pressure, pulse, and temperature are analyzed. On none of these was there a constant effect. Maternal mortality (5.4 per cent) was low in comparison with that obtained with other treatments used in the same hospital. Perinatal mortality was high (29.3 per cent). The chief complications were sudden hypotension in 2 cases and puerperal psychosis in 8.
