INTRODUCTION Vigabatrin (VGB) is implicated to cause visual field defects. We estimated the prevalence, described the characteristics and investigated the risk factors of VGB-attributable visual field defects. METHODS Patients with intractable partial epilepsy under VGB add-on treatment received static perimetric examinations. Visual field charts were reviewed and interpreted using a three-grade system. Clinical features and therapeutic courses were analyzed for possible risk factors… CONTINUE READING
