Clinical Reasoning: Wilbrand’s Knee, Scotoma of Traquair, and Normal Tension Glaucoma

A meningioma was shown compressing the right optic nerve at its junction with the chiasm by brain magnetic resonance imaging. Compressive disorders on the anterior chiasm, although rarely, can result in cupping of the disc and unilateral temporal visual field defect with normal visual acuity that should be considered in the differential diagnosis of NTG.

Retinal Vessel Density Changes on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography and Predictive Factors in Normal-Tension Glaucoma Treated with Topical Beta-Blocker

NTG not using systemic drugs, and 80 patients treated with topical carteolol therapy between December 2019 and November 2020 were included in this study. After the 6-month treatment period, we investigated the changes in VD/SSI and determined the causal factors. Results: Following the 6-month treatment period, the peripapillary VD increased in 40 patients but not so much in the other 40 patients. Carteololol therapy may raise or reduce the VD in patients with NTG.
