Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy account for substantial maternal and peri-natal morbidity and mortality. Atypical eclampsia presents as a diagnostic dilemma and challenge for the treating obstetrician. The purpose of this case report is to increase awareness of the nonclassic and atypical features of eclampsia so as to avoid complications. Whilst controlling the convulsions by instituting magnesium sulfate therapy, simultaneous search for any organic/metabolic cause for seizure needs to be looked for. Constant vigilance with a high level of suspicion is required for a more positive maternal and foetal outcome.
