Pages: 
357–9

ABSTRACT

A 56-year old female reported having had a fall two weeks prior to presentation.  Computed Tomography (CT) scan showed an acute right-sided convexity subdural haematoma.  Acomputed tomography angiogram revealed no vascular anomaly. One hour post procedure she had bilateral cortical blindness. Her vision subsequently was fully restored. A diagnosis of transient cortical blindness was made. Transient cortical blindness is a rare but recognized complication of intra-arterial injection of iodinated contrast agents.
