Gestational hypertension is a leading cause of maternal mortality, complicating about 7% of pregnancies (27). In LMICs, pregnancy-induced hypertension accounts for 10 to 15% of maternal deaths (28).

This study therefore aims to determine the prevalence of PAD in adult Nigerian hypertensive patients Between August to December 2004, two hundred and fifty hypertensive patients, (one hundred and fifty with only hypertension, and one hundred with hypertension and co-existent diabetes mellitus) were screened for PAD.

Prevalence rates of atherosclerosis for both disease states were similar, and they were significantly higher than the apparently normal group(P<.001). 4.Discussion
