Résumé (français)  :

Abstract (English)  :

This issue of the BMJ includes a study which examines the relation between pre-eclampsia and cancer.1 Many researchers have suggested that pre-eclampsia or hypertension in pregnancy is associated with a reduced risk or no excess risk of cancer in the mother.2-8 However this week’s study by Paltiel et al shows an increased risk of cancer after pre-eclampsia.1

The available evidence therefore suggests that women in Europe and North America probably have a reduced risk of cancer after pre-eclampsia, at least in the short term. With increasing time, this risk might reverse. It is also possible that women from the Middle East have some common underlying risk factors for certain cancers and pre-eclampsia, possibly related to genetics or lifestyle factors. Unfortunately any explanation for these results is speculative, so further good quality population based studies with long periods of follow up are necessary.
