What causes pregnancy induced hypertension?

Still a mystery. My OB chairman told us this about a famous hospital where pioneers in pregnancy worked and studied complications like toxemia. It was called chicago lying-in hospital; it evolved into labor and delivery of the u chicago medical center. Nearby is a row of plaques of famous researchers. There is one for the person who discovers the cause of preeclampsia. After all of these years, it is still empty.
No one knows. There have been many theories, but no one knows what causes pregnancy induced hypertension.
