Abducens nerve palsy complicating pregnancy: a case report.
ABSTRACT We report a case presented at 38 weeks gestation with abducens nerve palsy. No specific pathology was found. After reviewing all the previously reported cases, hypertension is found to be a common factor in all cases presenting in late pregnancy. The clinical course is benign and all resolved after delivery.

ABSTRACT: The common neurological manifestations of pre-eclampsia include headache, confusion, and visual disturbance; while isolated abducens nerve palsy in pre-eclampsia is very rare. We report one case of a severe pre-eclampsia with abducens nerve palsy at 39 weeks' gestation. There was no specific pathology, except hypertension, and the palsy resolved spontaneously.Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Research 09/2007; 33(4):543-5. · 0.84 Impact Factor
