Abstract

We investigated the association between hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) subtypes and child autistic behavior to accumulate the evidence. We found the association between superimposed preeclampsia and autistic behavior in children aged two years old by investigating 6794 mother-child pairs in the birth cohort study. Since early intervention for autism-spectrum disorder might be effective, it suggests that early prediction is necessary for children born of mothers who developed particularly superimposed preeclampsia to support their development. Not only for introducing early prediction, but also research for establishing effective intervention is necessary.
