Abstract

This book presents a collection of lectures given by members of the faculty at a Symposium in Neuro-ophthalmology at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in 1973. The contributions range from a valuable chapter aimed at helping the clinician avoid the commonest major errors encountered in the practice of neuro-ophthalmology to an up-to-date review of developmental tumors about the optic chiasm and to a discussion of the ophthalmic aspects of the batteredchild syndrome. The core of the book, which will be most used by the busy ophthalmologist and neuro-ophthalmologist, deals consisely and helpfully with optic disc hypoplasia in aniridia, disc edema, and toxic, nutritional, and ischemic optic neuropathies. Some contributions contain recent experimental observations that widen the scope of the book, but the emphasis is predominantly clinical, and the reader is stimulated to improve his own clinical skills and curiosity.

This book, unlike previous volumes in this series, concludes with abstracts
