Abstract

Aim: To study retinal changes among patients presenting with pregnancy induced hypertension
Material and Methods: Patients who fulfilled diagnostic criteria of pregnancy induced hypertension were
enrolled.
Results: Total 100 patients were examined among which 21 patients had grade I hypertensive changes, 32
showed grade II changes, 8 and 3 patients had grade III and IV retinopathy respectively. Three patients
developed serous retinal detachment.
Conclusion: We conclude that sixty four percent of patients with pregnancy induced hypertension had
related retinopathy. Focal spasms or generalized arteriolar attenuation were the most common vascular
findings. Grade III and Grade IV retinopathy changes were more frequently noted in patients with severe
preeclampsia and eclampsia.

Keywords: Retinal changes, Pregnancy induced hypertension.
