PMID:  22346034     Owner:  NLM     Status:  PubMed-not-MEDLINE    
The maternal and perinatal fetal prognosis of preeclampsia depends on the gestational age of the fetus at onset, the severity of the disease, the quality of care, and the presence of pre-existent medical conditions. One of the uncommon effects of severe preeclampsia on the eye is sudden loss of vision. The present case report is of a woman with severe preeclampsia exacerbated by delivery that coursed with difficult-to-control arterial hypertension and reversible cortical amaurosis without impaired consciousness or seizures.
