PMID:  8530688     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Proliferative retinopathy is a recognized long-term complication of diabetes and the commonest cause of blindness in young people. There is, however, some uncertainty regarding counselling given on the continuation of pregnancy when it is complicated by retinopathy. This case is used to highlight this difficulty and to discuss management based on literature review.
