Characteristic Visual Field Defects of Patients with Occipital Lobe Infarction: Homonymous Hemianopia and Macular Sparing
Occipital lobe lesions are usually caused by trauma or infarction. The most characteristic visual field defect is symmetrical homonymous hemianopia, which is usually accompanied by macular sparing. This section will discuss the possible pathological mechanism of macular sparing in two cases.
