1. Patient presentation

  • A 64-year-old woman presented to the outpatient clinic with headache and progressively
    decreasing vision in both eyes.

  • When questioned, she reported that she had undergone neurosurgery 6 years ago. However, she did
    not bring the surgical reports with her, nor did she remember the exact type of surgery that had
    been performed.

  • Non-enhanced CT of the brain was performed to rule-out increased intracranial pressure.
