The aim of this study was to retrospectively compare the perinatal mortality of Jewish and Bedouin hypertensive patients in the Southern area of Israel.
Since almost 100% of the deliveries took place in the Soroka Medical Center, the sole hospital of the area, the computerized files of our department during 5 years (1986-1990) were used in the study.
Data on the frequency of hypertensive disorder types, rates of stillbirths and neonatal deaths, maternal age and parity, pre-term and term deliveries, prenatal care, intrauterine growth retardation, mode of delivery and fetal sex, were analysed according to ethnicity.
Among a total of 40 780 deliveries, 2343 were of hypertensive pregnancies.
