Description In view of probable differences in the mechanisms by which intrinsic and compressive lesions impair conduction in the optic nerves, we attempted to identify corresponding differences in the pattern of visual loss caused by demyelinating disease and a variety of compressive lesions. We found that immediately after onset of symptoms of acute optic neuritis a central scotoma is common (61%).
