Some patients with nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy have no signs or symptoms of systemic vascular disease; therefore, nonvascular factors may play a role in the pathogenesis of this syndrome. We observed that the average cup-disk ratio of the unaffected optic disks in a group of patients with ischemic optic neuropathy was significantly (P = .005)(More)
The visually evoked potential was abnormal in 17 of 18 patients with Huntington disease. Both early and late wave components were affected, and the averaged amplitude for the patients was reduced in comparison with 50 normal control subjects. Despite striking attenuation and disorganization of the complex, latency of initial wave components was normal. The(More)
Spasticity is a common neurologic condition in patients with multiple sclerosis, stroke, cerebral palsy or an injured spinal cord. Animal studies suggest that THC has an inhibitory effect on polysynaptic reflexes. Some spastic patients claim improvement after inhaling cannabis. We tested muscle tone, reflexes, strength and performed EMGs before and after(More)
We describe three patients with acute chiasmal visual field loss caused by hemorrhage within an intrachiasmal arteriovenous malformation. One patient had five episodes; vision improved three times without treatment and twice after surgical decompression. Surgical intervention restored vision in two of the three patients. The role for surgery is indefinite,(More)
