Case 1. A primipara, pregnant seven months. Urine had been examined, but no albumen found. There was a marked optic-neuritis and some retinitis; later a few fan-shaped hemorrhages appeared. Vision was reduced to perception of light before labor was induced.

A living child was delivered.

Three years later vision was 20/30 in each eye, and there was albumen in the urine.
