PURPOSE: Obesity and weight gain are known risk factors for idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH; or pseudotumor cerebri). The authors examined profiles of body mass index (BMI) and patterns of weight gain associated with IIH. They also examined vision-specific health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in newly diagnosed IIH patients and explored the relative contribution of obesity and weight gain to overall HRQOL in this disorder.

DESIGN: Matched case-control study.

METHODS: Female ...

INTRODUCTION: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is increasingly recognized as a cause of spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak in the otolarnygological and neurosurgical literature. The diagnosis of IIH in patients with spontaneous CSF leaks typically is made a few weeks after surgical repair of the leak when symptoms and signs of elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) appear.

METHODS: Case reports and literature review. Two young obese women developed spontaneous CSF ...

PURPOSE: To examine the prevalence and incidence of second eye nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) and associated patient characteristics in patients enrolled in the Ischemic Optic Neuropathy Decompression Trial (IONDT) Follow-up Study.

DESIGN: Randomized clinical trial with observational cohort.

METHODS: Patients randomized to optic nerve sheath decompression surgery or careful follow-up had a diagnosis of acute unilateral NAION, visual acuity between 20/64 and light ...

PURPOSE: To determine medical student preferences for learning the ocular fundus examination and to assess their accuracy using different examination modalities.

DESIGN: Prospective, randomized study of medical student education approaches.

METHODS: First-year medical students received training in direct ophthalmoscopy using simulators and human volunteers. Students were randomized to receive vs not receive specific training on interpreting fundus photographs prior to accuracy ...

PURPOSE: To use static threshold perimetry to examine the stages of improvement and the potential for late improvement of visual fields after surgical resection of pituitary adenomas causing visual loss from compression of the anterior visual pathways.

METHODS: Retrospective review of charts of patients with pituitary tumors and abnormal static threshold perimetry before or soon after treatment who had subsequent visual fields. Quantification of the visual field mean deviation overall, ...

BACKGROUND: Acute isolated optic neuritis is often the first manifestation of multiple sclerosis (MS), and its management remains controversial. Over the past decade, with the advent of new disease-modifying agents, management of isolated optic neuritis has become more complicated.

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the current practice patterns of Canadian ophthalmologists and neurologists in the management of acute optic neuritis, and to evaluate the impact of recently published randomized ...

An epidemic neuropathy in Cuba has caused bilateral optic neuropathies in more than 26,000 people during the past three years. Various pathogenetic factors have been proposed, including toxins, nutritional deficiencies, and an underlying genetic predisposition involving mitochondrial DNA. As part of a case-control collaborative investigation, 135 Cuban blood samples were analyzed for the most common mitochondrial DNA mutations associated with Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy. None of ...

BACKGROUND: The association between cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks at the skull base and raised intracranial pressure (ICP) has been reported since the 1960s. It has been suggested that spontaneous CSF leaks might represent a variant of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). We review the evidence regarding the association between spontaneous CSF leaks and IIH, and the role of ICP in the pathophysiology of nontraumatic skull base defects. We also discuss the management of ICP in ...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: During the first phase of the Fundus Photography vs Ophthalmoscopy Trial Outcomes in the Emergency Department study, 13% (44/350; 95% confidence interval [CI] 9% to 17%) of patients had an ocular fundus finding, such as papilledema, relevant to their emergency department (ED) management found by nonmydriatic ocular fundus photography reviewed by neuro-ophthalmologists. All of these findings were missed by emergency physicians, who examined only 14% of enrolled patients ...

BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may be associated with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), a disorder most commonly occurring in young obese women. Because polysomnography, the standard test for diagnosing OSA, is expensive and time consuming, questionnaires have been developed to identify persons with OSA. The Berlin questionnaire (BQ) reliably identifies middle-aged and older persons in the community who are at high-risk for OSA. We aimed to validate the BQ as a ...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of a single intravitreal injection of rAAV2/2-ND4 in subjects with visual loss from Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON).

DESIGN: RESCUE is a multicenter, randomized, double-masked, sham-controlled, phase 3 clinical trial.

PARTICIPANTS: Subjects with the m.11778G>A mitochondrial DNA mutation and vision loss ≤6 months from onset in 1 or both eyes were included.

METHODS: Each subject's right eye was randomly assigned (1:1) to treatment with rAAV2/2-ND4 ...

Perioperative visual loss (POVL) is a devastating injury that has been reported infrequently after nonocular surgery. The most common cause of POVL is ischemic optic neuropathy (ION). Increasing numbers of cases of ION are being reported after spine surgery, but the etiology of postoperative ION remains poorly understood. After a MEDLINE search of the literature, we reviewed published case reports of ION, specifically those reported after spine surgery performed with the patient in the ...

BACKGROUND: Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) is a maternally inherited bilaterally blinding optic neuropathy, predominantly affecting otherwise healthy young individuals, mostly men. The visual prognosis is generally poor, with most patients worsening to at least 20/200 visual acuity. The m.11778G>A (MTND4) mitochondrial DNA mutation is the most common cause of LHON and is associated with poor outcomes and limited potential for meaningful visual recovery. Treatments for LHON are ...

BACKGROUND: The primary role of brain imaging in idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is to exclude other pathologies causing intracranial hypertension. However, subtle radiologic findings suggestive of IIH have emerged with modern neuroimaging. This review provides a detailed description of the imaging findings reported in IIH and discusses their possible roles in the pathophysiology and the diagnosis of IIH.
