Neuro-Ophthalmology Cases for the Neurologist
Nervous System Diseases
Neurologists should be aware of specific urgent and emergent neuro-ophthalmic conditions, including giant cell arteritis, arterial dissection, intracranial aneurysm, pituitary apoplexy, and invasive sino-orbital fungal infection (eg, mucormycosis). Early recognition and treatment can greatly impact patient morbidity and mortality, including the preservation of vision and life. Neurologists should be cognizant of the key and differentiating clinical and radiographic features for these presentations.
