Isolated Optic Neuritis/Neuropathy

Update item information
Identifier 91_38
Title Isolated Optic Neuritis/Neuropathy
Subject Pseudotumor Cerebri/Papilledema; Edema
Description Papilledema may produce visual loss due to chronic atrophic papilledema, secondary macular hemorrhage, exudate or edema, secondary ischemic optic neuropathy, or secondary subretinal neovascular membrane formation. Patients with papilledema and visual loss should be suspected of harboring one of these mechanisms, or an alternate cause for an optic neuropathy and optic disc edema should be considered.
