Retinopathy in toxemia of pregnancy

Academic Article


  • Two cases of toxemia of pregnancy are presented, with color photographic documentation of the accompanying retinopathy. Although both pregnancies resulted in delivery of a viable infant and resolution of other systemic manifestations of toxemia, both patients were left with severe visual impairment. The retinopathy of toxemia is emphasized as a potential source of permanent morbidity in this complication of pregnancy. © 1981 Southern Medical Association.
