Abstract :

A 72-year-old lady was admitted with a 3-day history of worsening confusion and visual hallucinations, preceded by 2 days of dizziness and unsteadiness on feet. She had returned from a vacation in Spain a week prior to the onset of symptoms. She had an associated headache which was said to localize to the vertex of the head. There was no associated radiation, pyrexia, aphasia, dysphasia, weight loss or other systemic symptoms. Past medical history of hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, RaynaudÔ??s and Hypergammaglobulinemia with decreased complement count was noted. On admission, she was found to have a left-sided temporal hemianopia which progressed to a left homonymous hemianopia (confirmed with formal visual field testing). She was found to have an underlying clinoid meningioma with a subsequent superimposed right PCA infarct.
