I know that women with CHT are at greater risk of developing PE, but I don't know how many do in fact get it. I will try to find some stats.

Oh ok. Pre e is so conflicting. I thought it was from the placenta not implanting correctly.. If that was the case risk factors really wouldn't matter.. It would just happen randomly?

IIRC, the overall rate for superimposed preeclampsia in chronic hypertensive patients is 25%.
