Abstract

Neurological manifestations are seldom reported during labour with majority of cases being eclampsia. We report a case of 33-year-old lady in her second pregnancy developing features of raised intracranial pressure (bilateral Abducens nerve palsy and papilloedema) after administration of Prostaglandin E2 for induction of labour. Radiological imaging was unremarkable and the neurological symptoms spontaneously resolved within 24 hours of the delivery of the baby.
