118 Possible Causes for Bitemporal Hemianopsia

  • Hypogonadism

    Hypogonadism means diminished functional activity of the gonads—the testes or the ovaries—that may result in diminished production of sex hormones. Low androgen (e.g., testosterone) levels are referred to as hypoandrogenism and low estrogen (e.g., estradiol) as hypoestrogenism. These are responsible for the[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Suprasellar Tumor

    An examination of her visual fields revealed bitemporal hemianopsia. Her corrected visual acuity with eye glasses was insufficient.[semanticscholar.org] Physical examinations were normal except bitemporal hemianopsia revealed by ophthalmic examination.[path.upmc.edu] hemianopsia Transsphenoidal 4 Bhagat, 10) 2002 68 M Intrasellar and suprasellar ND Bitemporal hemianopsia Transsphenoidal 5 Whee, 11) 2002 39 M Intrasellar and suprasellar[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a life-threatening condition that refers to bleeding into the subarachnoid space. Most cases are attributed to a ruptured aneurysm. Additionally, there are risk factors such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, smoking, and other conditions as well. Up to 50% of patients with SAH[…][symptoma.com]

  • Pituitary Neoplasm

    Cushing-like effects, diplopia, bitemporal hemianopsia and diabetes insipidus are some of many symptoms that can be encountered.[symptoma.com] The most common problem is to lose vision in the outer fields (peripheral vision), called a bitemporal hemianopsia.[houstonmethodist.org] This type of pituitary adenoma results in: • Blurry vision • Loss of peripheral vision, called bitemporal hemianopsia • Loss of color perception, the ability to distinguish[texasspineandneurosurgerycenter.com]

  • Craniopharyngioma

    Of the seventeen (63%) patients presenting with varying degrees of bitemporal hemianopsia, all had improvement in vision postoperatively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] People may present with bitemporal inferior quadrantanopia leading to bitemporal hemianopsia, as the tumor may compress the optic chiasm.[en.wikipedia.org] This is known as “bitemporal hemianopsia,” and is a result of the tumor pressing on the optic chiasm (a structure where the two optic nerves cross).[neurosurgery.ufl.edu]

  • Acromegaly

    A 50-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with headache, mild acromegaly, and bitemporal hemianopsia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, bitemporal hemianopsia was observed on campimetry. After further examination, the patient was diagnosed with acromegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include headaches, visual abnormalities, typically bitemporal hemianopsia, and cranial nerve palsies.[symptoma.com]

  • Sellar Tumor with Suprasellar Extension

    A patient with pituitary adenoma may present with visual field defects, classically bitemporal hemianopsia.[en.wikipedia.org] The anatomy of this structure causes pressure on it to produce a defect in the temporal visual field on both sides, a condition called bitemporal hemianopsia.[en.wikipedia.org] If originating superior to the optic chiasm, more commonly in a craniopharyngioma of the pituitary stalk, the visual field defect will first appear as bitemporal inferior[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Launois Syndrome

    Symptoms related to the compressive effects of the tumor include headaches, visual disturbances such as bitemporal hemianopsia, and signs of hypopituitarism.[symptoma.com]

  • Empty Sella Syndrome

    A 48-year-old man with a prolactin-secreting macroadenoma treated with cabergoline presented with progressive bitemporal hemianopsia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Decrease in visual acuity, generalized by narrowing of its peripheral fields, bitemporal hemianopsia are possible.[iliveok.com]

  • Berry Aneurysm

    Abstract Intracranial berry aneurysms are the most common kind of aneurysms in the brain, and are caused by head trauma in 1% of cases. They may remain asymptomatic for a long time or may rupture and cause intracranial hemorrhage. These aneurysms are associated with a high mortality rate. A definitive diagnosis[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
