Abstract Details


Two clinical cases are presented: one - with Foster-Kennedy syndrome and another with Pseudo-Foster-Kennedy syndrome.


The patients have been examined at the Department of ophthalmology, Medical University, Plovdiv, Clinic of ophthalmology, UMBAL „St George”, Plovdiv, Bulgaria.


The ophthalmological examination includes: fundus biomicroscopy, computerized tomography (CT) with and without contrast, computerized perimetry (CP) with Humphrey Field Analyzer – II series.


First case: female aged 56 years who has visual acuity/VA/ of the right eye 0.001 and VA of the left eye P.P.L.I. Fundus examination reveals optic disc oedema of the left eye and partial optic disc atrophy (temporal). CT shows bifrontal tumoral process. Second case: male aged 58 years who has normal VA. Fundus examination reveals optic disc oedema of the right eye and partial optic disc atrophy of the left eye. CT does not show tumoral process, CP shows altitudinal scotoma found in anterior ischemic optic neuropathy.


The presented cases are clinical and diagnostic challenge due to the connection between the pathological changes in the ocular fundus and the following bilateral partial lost of vision. Delayed diagnosis of a brain tumor is a life threatening condition.
