  • Papilledema

    It can progress to enlargement of the blind spot, blurring of vision, visual obscurations (inability to see in a particular part of the visual field for a period of time).[] Goldmann visual field revealed an enlarged blind spot in the right eye only ( Figure 2 ).[] The visual hallmarks are relatively spared visual acuity in the setting of bilateral optic disc edema with enlarged blind spots, nasal visual field loss, or constriction of[]

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    In patients with visual loss, the most common perimetric finding was partial arcuate visual field defect with an enlarged blind spot, and patients tended to have mild loss[] . – Enlarged blind spot or other visual field loss. – Diplopia. 6. Associated Conditions  Before examination, think!?[] The most common visual field defect was a partial arcuate defect with an enlarged blind spot, and the average (SD) CSF opening pressure was 343.5 (86.9) mm H 2 O.[]

  • Astrocytoma of the Brain

    Changes (such as swelling) may be observed in the back of the eye, where the blind spot is.[] In young children, the growing pressure of an astrocytoma tumor inside the skull may enlarge the head.[]

  • Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis

    Occlusion or thrombosis of the superior ophthalmic vein or of the cavernous sinus is an unspecific finding that may be secondary to different disorders such as tumours of the skull base or nasopharynx. Sometimes, however, no underlying disorder is found in spite of an extensive clinical and radiological evaluation.[…][]

It is associated with traction injuries to the brachial plexus, commonly after high-speed motor vehicle collisions. Traumatic nerve root avulsion occurs when traction forces pull the nerve root sleeve into the intervertebral foramen[…][]

We report a case of sudden unexpected death in a middle-aged woman with a history of arachnoid cyst who had sudden spontaneous onset of severe headache that was rapidly followed[…][]

  • Malignant Glioma

    Abstract To determine the frequency of progressive MRI lesions shortly after radiotherapy for glioma with spontaneous improvement or stabilization, the authors studied a cohort of patients treated within two prospective phase III trials with radiotherapy only. In 9 out of 32 patients, the first post-radiotherapy[…][]
