Abstract: A case of postpartum eclampsia is reported, controlled by intravenous clonazepam, a benzodiazepine anticonvulsant. Clonazepam was effective in controlling the myoclonic jerks, which were a feature in this patient, without producing excessive sedation. The literature reveals several reports on the use of clonazepam in severe preeclampsia, but its use in Australia has not been widely employed.
