Bilateral retinal detachment in a case of preeclampsia
Keywords:preeclampsia, retinal detachment, hypertension
Serous retinal detachment is an unusual cause of visual loss in preeclampsia. We report the case of 24-years-old primipara with severe preeclampsia who developed bilateral serous retinal detachment a few hours after delivery. A few weeks after delivery there was spontaneous resorption of the subretinal fluid and complete resolution bilateral serous retinal detachment, with residual pigmentary changes of the retinal pigment epithelium. Visual acuity was normal in each eye.
The management of retinal detachment as a complication in preeclampsia is conservative and the prognosis is usually good.
