There are many rural areas where obstetric care is predominately performed by family medicine physicians. As such, it is important for family medicine physicians to stay up to date with the latest obstetric guidelines. Preeclampsia is a well-established disorder and the guidelines for screening and treatment are well known. However, atypical presentations of preeclampsia have been less studied. Notably, what constitutes atypical preeclampsia and when to be concerned for increased morbidity and mortality in the mother and neonate. This report describes a unique case in which a woman with proteinuria of pregnancy developed atypical preeclampsia with severe features. This report discusses the care that was given by a practicing family medicine physician and the reasoning behind it.
