Central serous chorioretinopathy during pregnancy complicated by systemic hypertension - a case report.


We present a case of a pregnant woman with pregnancy induced systemic hypertension who developed bilateral central serous chorioretinopathy diagnosed after caesarean delivery. Central serous chorioretinopathy can occur in the third trimester of pregnancy and generally has a benign course and good prognosis. Our patient ended up with significant and permanent visual impairment in one eye. Probably in some cases, early ophthalmic diagnostic management, including optical coherence tomography could help identify patients at risk of pemanent visual impairment due to chronic central serous chorioretinopathy and assess their eligibility for subtreshold micropulse laser treatment.
