Reversible blindness in severe preeclampsia: A case report
Author(s): Vinay Kumar and Kranti Bisht
Abstract: Visual disturbances are common with severe preeclampsia, however, blindness either alone or accompanying convulsions is uncommon. Most women with varying degree of amaurosis are found to have radiographic evidence of extensive occipital lobe hypodensities. In this case report, we present the clinical course of two women in whom preeclampsia was further complicated by blindness. These were managed by standard pre-eclampsia regimen used at our institute.
