MRI of the Optic Nerves and Chiasm in Patients With Leber Hereditary Optic Neuropathy
Conclusions: Involvement of the posterior portions of the optic nerves has been described previously in case reports of patients with LHON. Our results support this observation with neuroimaging performed within 1 year of onset of visual loss. Enlargement of the optic chiasm also may occur in patients with LHON. The pathophysiology of the MRI changes is not yet understood.

Historical Trends in the Diagnosis of Peduncular Hallucinosis
Conclusions: Although eye movement abnormalities historically have been considered a key localizing clinical feature supporting the diagnosis of PH, we found that in the era of modern neuroimaging, co-occurring eye movement abnormalities are far less frequent and are not a requisite feature of the diagnosis.

Vigabatrin: Lessons Learned From the United States Experience
Abstract: Vigabatrin was introduced as an antiseizure medication in the United Kingdom in 1989 and was extensively used until 1997 when concerns arose regarding peripheral visual field loss. When the drug was approved in the United States in 2009, it carried a black box warning for the risk of permanent visual loss, and the pharmaceutical company was mandated to create a drug registry to assess for visual deficits. The vigabatrin drug registry has documented a relatively large percentage (37%) of preexisting, baseline visual deficits and a paucity (2%) of potential new visual findings. The vigabatrin vision study, a pros...

Optimal Intereye Difference Thresholds in Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness for Predicting a Unilateral Optic Nerve Lesion in Multiple Sclerosis
Background: The optic nerve is a frequent site for involvement in multiple sclerosis (MS). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) detects thinning of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) in eyes of patients with MS and in those meeting criteria for clinically or radiologically isolated demyelinating syndromes. Current international diagnostic criteria for MS do not include the optic nerve as an imaging lesion site despite the high prevalence of acute optic neuritis (ON), or occult optic neuropathy, among early MS and clinically isolated syndrome patients; as well as most MS patients over the course of the disease. We sought ...

Congenital Third Nerve Palsy Associated With Midbrain Hypoplasia Due to Bilateral Segmental Internal Carotid Artery Agenesis
Abstract: A 15-year-old girl, diagnosed with a partial right third nerve palsy, was found to have bilateral internal carotid artery agenesis. Neuroimaging with 3D-constructive interference in steady state scanning identified the possible etiology of the third nerve palsy as midbrain hypoplasia.

Seneca and the First Description of Anton Syndrome
Abstract: Seneca was a Roman philosopher, politician, and mentor to the young Nero. He later fell in disgrace and was sentenced to death by the Emperor. Seneca left many texts, one of the most influential being his Moral Letters to Lucilius (63 CE). In Letter 50, he describes the case of Harpaste, his wife's foolish slave who acutely became blind. She denied her illness and argued irrationally about room darkness, constantly asking attendants to change her quarters. Harpaste's case, consisting of acutely acquired blindness and anosognosia in the presence of relatively well-preserved cognition, fulfills the clinical crite...

Visual Snow: Visual Misperception
Conclusions: VSS is likely associated with either hyperactive visual cortices or, alternatively, impaired processing of simultaneous afferent information projecting to cortex. VSS likely results from widespread disturbance of sensory processing resulting in sensory misperception. There may be a number of syndromes associated with impaired sensory processing resulting in sensory misperception, including migraine, persistent perceptual postural dizziness, and tinnitus, which overlap with VSS. Elucidation of abnormality in one defined syndrome may provide a path forward for investigating all.

Patterns of Cortical Visual Field Defects From Embolic Stroke Explained by the Anastomotic Organization of Vascular Microlobules
Abstract: The cerebral cortex is supplied by vascular microlobules, each comprised of a half dozen penetrating arterioles that surround a central draining venule. The surface arterioles that feed the penetrating arterioles are interconnected via an extensively anastomotic plexus. Embolic occlusion of a small surface arteriole rarely produces a local infarct, because collateral blood flow is available through the vascular reticulum. Collateral flow also protects against infarct after occlusion of a single penetrating arteriole. Cortical infarction requires blockage of a major arterial trunk, with arrest of blood flow to a...
