ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Multiple Sclerosis, Quadrantanopsia

History: 42 y.o. combat fighter pilot c/o "blind spot" - sudden onset six days ago and lasted about four hours. Previous Hx of a similar episode several years ago.

Findings: • Lateral geniculate body - abnormal signal and enhancement • Additional periventricular lesions

Ddx: • Multiple sclerosis • Lyme disease • ADEM (Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis) • Sarcoidosis • Vasculitis (SLE, etc.)

Dxhow: Clinical Hx and response to steroid therapy

Exam: Right inferior quadrantanopsia on formal visual field testing G6PD deficiency

No MeSH data available.


Lesions involving the lateral geniculate nucleus and distal optic radiations may selectively damage either the upper or lower visual field pathway - producing a quadrantanopsia. [Remember, we have already split the visual field into a Left and Right half.]
