We report a case of hypertensive choroidopathy presenting with peripapillary serous detachment in a patient with chronic hypertension with super imposed pre-eclampsia. The fundus evaluation showed grade 4 hypertensive retinopathy changes with peripapillary serous detachment which was confirmed on Optical coherence tomography. This is an unusual presentation, as these changes are commonly seen in the macular region.
