Abstract

A 41 year old female following decompression of post-traumatic frontal contusion was complaining of visual loss in ipsilateral eye. Clinical and imaging features were suggestive of compression injury to intracranial part of left optic nerve. We discuss and correlate clinical and imaging findings in this case of pre-chiasmatic nerve injury.
