This report presents a patient who sustained closed head injury with chiasmal trauma. This uncommon injury may not be apparent on routine imaging studies. It is significant, not only from the visual standpoint, but also because of the association with serious conditions, such as panhypopituitarism, traumatic carotid aneurysm, carotid cavernous fistulae, and meningitis associated with leakage of cerebrospinal fluid. This report demonstrates that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the best method for identifying chiasmal abnormalities.
