50), often subjectively localized to only one eye. Again, the visual field in the ‘normal’ eye may be diagnostic. A visual field is a valuable screening test in any patient complaining of visual dysfunction without an obvious reason. An 81-year-old lady was referred with vague visual complaints and a putative diagnosis of GCA. Visual fields had a distinct homonymous hemianopic flavor (Fig. 56). An MRI demonstrated a rather massive and relatively asymptomatic occipital lobe meningioma causing her visual symptoms (Fig.

Chiasmal syndromes range from subtle junctional scotomas due to compression or inflammation of the optic nerve anterior chiasmal junction, to classic bitemporal hemianopias, to central (macular) bitemporal hemianopias due to compression of the posterior chiasmal notch by an enlarged third ventricle. The following cases—examples of a variety of chiasmal visual field defects—are illustrative. A patient was recently referred with a mildly elevated sedimentation rate for evaluation of an atrophic optic disc and a biopsy of her superficial temporal artery to rule out GCA.

Ascending optic atrophy is secondary to a primary retinal disorder destroying ganglion cells. Examples include central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO; Fig. 21), extensive macular lesions (Fig. 21 Optic atrophy due to diffuse loss of retinal ganglion cells after central retinal artery occlusion. 22), infiltration and destruction of ganglion cells (Tay-Sachs and Batten-Mayou diseases; Fig. 23) or diffuse retinal disease (retinitis pigmentosa; Fig. 24). There are a variety of metabolic (mucopolysaccharidoses, lipidoses) and degenerative neurologic diseases (Friedreichs’s ataxia, spinocerebellar degeneration, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease) associated with optic atrophy and visual loss.
