A mechanical theory to account for bitemporal hemianopia from chiasmal compression
The association between bitemporal hemianopia and chiasmal compression is well recognized. The majority of chiasmal syndromes are caused by extrinsic compression from pituitary tumors, suprasellar meningiomas, craniopharyngiomas, and aneurysms. However, it is not clear why compressive lesions of the chiasm show a predilection for damage to nasal fibers with bitemporal hemianopia. Few experimental attempts at elucidating these mysteries have been reported and none has provided an adequate...[Show more]
