Aim: To evaluate the validity of serum inhibin A levels in assessing the severity of preeclampsia. Methods: Hospital based, prospective study conducted in Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore. Inclusion criteria: The patients in the study will be divided into cases and controls based on the criteria proposed. 5mL of venous blood was collected from each patient in an aseptic plain and EDTA vacutainer. Serum inhibin A levels estimated by the ELISA method. Statistical analysis: The samples were statistically analysed by [chi-square] χ2, student’s t-test. Mann-Whitney U-test was used for the comparison of multiples of median. All tests were two‐sided.Statistical significance was inferred for P values 0.05), which was statistically not significant while median serum inhibin A level in severe pre-eclampsia was 1472.5pg/mL (p
