    Abstract

    The clinical and fluorescein angiographic findings in 2 cases of retinal detachment occurring in toxaemia of pregnancy are presented. Both cases showed angiographic evidence of abnormal choroidal leakage of dye unassociated with signs of retinal angiospasm. Both cases also showed angiographic evidence of delayed filling of the choriocapillaris. We believe this finding has not previously been reported. These observations provide further clinical evidence that retinal detachment in toxaemia of pregnancy is secondary to choroidal damage.
