Purpose. To present a case of retinal and choroidal vascular occlusion in conjunction with HELLP syndrome. Methods. A 35 years-old woman presented with HELLP syndrome underwent cesarean delivery for preeclampsia. After 2 months she had a decrease of vision in OD. She had performed an eye examination with FAG and ICG. results. The FAG shows at the posterior pole in the perifoveola temporal area different areas of hyperfluorescence. ICG reveals frameworks of hypoperfusion in perimacular areas, for the probable presence of ischemic foci. After about 5 mounths she presented an improvement in visual acuity and a complete resolution of Ophtalmoscopic findings. Conclusions. Ophtalmic complications are possible during this syndrome. This is the first description of a patient suffering a retinal and choroidal vascolar occlusion after HELLP syndrome, and we report the important of ICG for diagnosis of choroidal ischemia.
