Chiasmal compression caused by a dilated third ventricle

H. S. Wisoff, M. Sarwar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A young man presented with visual loss and field changes suggesting direct chiasmal compression by a neighboring neoplasm. Contrast radiography demonstrated obstructive hydrocephalus secondary to a pineal tumor. The markedly dilated third ventricle was intrasellar in location and was causing chiasmal compression. The radiological and ophthalmological findings are discussed and correlated with of the operative findings with a review of the pertinent literature.
