Abstract

Color flow Doppler ultrasonography was used to demonstrate a significant and sustained reduction in the central retinal artery pulsatility index after administration of the calcium antagonist nimodipine to a patient with eclampsia. Nimodipine is an effective cerebral vasodilator and may be useful in the management of eclamptic patients with severe vasospasm.
