Bilateral exudative retinal detachment in pregnancy.

PMID:  2618638     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of bilateral exudative retinal detachment associated with otherwise normal pregnancy is presented. Similar cases, but associated with toxemia of pregnancy from the literature are discussed. As far as we know, this is first reported case where bilateral exudative retinal detachment presented in a normal pregnancy and the re-attachment started promptly after a normal, spontaneous delivery. The re-attachment was complete, and the visual acuity after one year was 20/20 o.u. This case supports earlier theories that hypertension is not the only cause of exudative retinal detachment during pregnancy.
