Title Compressive optic neuropathy caused by renal osteodystrophy. Case report.
Date 2001-10
Description Compressive optic neuropathy with acute or chronic vision loss has been associated with various skull base tumors, aneurysms, Graves disease, trauma, and, less commonly, fibrous dysplasia and osteopetrosis. The Author's present a case of acute visual deterioration in a 25-year-old woman who had massive calvarial hypertrophy with optic canal stenosis secondary to renal osteodystrophy (uremic leontiasis ossea [ULO]: bighead disease). Significant visual field restoration was achieved with high-dose corticosteroids followed by optic nerve decompression. This is the first case report of cranial neuropathy associated with ULO.
