Abstract

An 84-year-old woman reported onset of headaches, diplopia, and blurred vision. On examination, she was found to have a left sixth nerve palsy and an incongruous right homonymous hemianopia. Brain MRI demonstrated a left petroclival meningioma, causing this unusual combination of clinical findings. The patient was treated with radiation therapy and has remained stable over 4 years of follow-up.
