All subjects were women with singletone pregnancies who were seen in the postpartum department at Kosar hospital. Test and chi-square were used as statistical tests. Findings: Testosterone levels were significantly higher in patients with preeclampsia (1.9 0.5) ng/dl) than in the control group (0.58 0.3 ng/dl) (P<0.05) Conclusion: Testosterone levels in preeclamptic women is higher than normotensive women
