Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An 18-month-old female with right compressive optic nerve atrophy caused by an ipsilateral distorted internal carotid artery is reported. She was referred to an ophthalmologist at 8 months of age with the complaint of unilateral visual loss. Neuroimaging studies should contribute markedly to the determination of the causes of visual problems in young children.
