Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Thirteen giant aneurysms in ten patients were retrospectively reviewed. Careful visual field testing of both peripheral and central fields revealed an ipsilateral nasal scotoma in 7 of the 13 aneurysms (54%), or six of the ten patients. A review of 47 giant carotid aneurysms reported in the literature revealed 16 ipsilateral nasal scotomas (34%). The more common intraocular causes of ipsilateral nasal field defects were excluded by careful funduscopic examination. In the absence of intraocular pathologic characteristics, an ipsilateral nasal junction scotoma should alert the clinician to suspect the presence of an otherwise silent internal carotid artery aneurysm.
