Abstract

ABSTRACT: A 43-year-old woman presented with progressive anosmia, self-neglect, and lethargy for 1 year. Brain MRI demonstrated a mass that was compressing the optic nerve in the right eye and had a significant mass effect and cerebral edema producing increased intracranial pressure. Examination revealed the patient to have a variant of Foster Kennedy syndrome involving ipsilateral compressive optic neuropathy with superimposed optic disc edema and contralateral papilledema.
