• Central serous choroidopathy is an infrequent complication of pregnancy. A serous detachment of the macula was seen in three women during the course of their normal pregnancy. All patients showed resolution of the macular serous detachment in the third trimester, with resultant retinal pigment epithelial mottling; symptoms resolved in all patients post partum. Laboratory testing was not beneficial in establishing the cause of this disorder.
