• Goldmann perimetry was performed on patients with pseudopapilledema. The cases were subdivided into those with ophthalmoscopically visible hyaline bodies (HB), (group 1) and those without (group 2). In group 1, 37 of 52 eyes (71%) demonstrated field abnormalities, including enlargement of the blind spot (68%) and various nerve fiber bundle defects (70%); inferior nasal defects were the single most frequent defect. In group 2, ten of 47 eyes (21%) showed only enlarged blind spots and two fields were generally constricted. No nerve fiber bundle defects were found in this group.
It is noted that field defects related to other ocular or intracranial diseases may be found in patients with intrapapillary HBs.
