Isolated Optic Neuritis/Neuropathy

Update item information
Identifier 96_69
Title Isolated Optic Neuritis/Neuropathy
Subject Pseudotumor Cerebri/Papilledema; Edema
Description Papilledema usually results in bilateral optic disc edema without visual loss. The blind spot may enlarge initially, but progressive visual field loss may occur with chronic optic disc edema. Asymmetric or frankly unilateral optic disc edema may occur due to structural disc fractures that prevent the transmission of intracranial pressure to the optic nerve (eg, optic atrophy).
