    Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography detects optic atrophy due to optic tract syndrome

    Abstract Background  Unilateral injury of the optic tract leads to asymmetrical optic atrophy in both eyes derived from the crossing of the nerve fibers at the chiasm. This report demonstrates unique imaging appearances of optic atrophy due to this uncommon condition detected by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods  Cirrus and RTVue measurements were performed in four cases of optic tract syndrome. Circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cpRNFL) thickness was obtained from both instruments and ganglion cell complex (GCC) integrity was obtained from RTVue. The presumable reduction rates of quadrant cpRNFL thickness were calculated from the published normative database and ...
