Serous retinal detachment is a rare complication of pre-eclampsia. We report the case of a 20-year-old patient with a 28-week pregnancy who was referred from the obstetric emergency department for a sudden decrease in visual acuity in both eyes. The general examination revealed high blood pressure with massive proteinuria and the ophthalmological examination showed extensive bilateral retinal serous detachment. In view of this clinical picture, blood pressure was balanced with antihypertensive therapy and the retina reapplied totally after 2 months.
