Gestational hypertension or hypertension during pregnancy (Preeclampsia) is yet to be understood significant obstetric problem which is responsible for poor perinatal and obstetric outcome. It is hypothesized that presence of inflammatory disease as remote as the one like periodontal disease could contribute to the etiopathogenesis of pregnancy hypertension through proinflammatory vasoactive mediators. In the present article, the available published evidences are chronicled in logical manner and unifying pathogenesis is outlined.
