Terson syndrome with bilateral optic nerve sheath hemorrhage

J Neuroophthalmol. 2007 Sep;27(3):193-4. doi: 10.1097/WNO.0b013e31814b22dc.

Abstract

A 53-year-old man presented with an acute headache and mental status changes due to rupture of an anterior choroidal artery aneurysm. A preoperative CT scan demonstrated subarachnoid hemorrhage, bilateral optic nerve sheath hemorrhage, and bilateral intraocular hemorrhage. Ophthalmoscopy and B-scan ocular ultrasound disclosed vitreous hemorrhages, features consistent with Terson syndrome. This is the first CT report of Terson syndrome showing bilateral optic nerve sheath hemorrhage.
