Migraine optic neuropathy

C. L. Cowan, David L Knox

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Transient visual symptoms associated with migraine are a well-described feature of this disease, but permanent visual loss is seen relatively infrequently. Three patients are discussed who experienced permanent visual defects following migraine attacks. Recognition of this syndrome may allow the physician to defer doing an extensive neurological examination of an otherwise neurologically intact patient.
