    Optical coherence tomography retinal ganglion cell complex analysis for the detection of early chiasmal compression

    Purpose To report patients with sellar tumors and chiasmal compression with normal visual fields, who demonstrate damage to the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and ganglion cell complex (GCC) on optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods Seven patients with sellar tumors causing mass effect on the optic chiasm without definite visual field defect, but abnormal GCC are described. GCC/RNFL analyses using Cirrus-OCT were classified into centiles based on the manufacturer’s reference range. Results In seven patients with radiologic compression of the chiasm by a sellar tumor, OCT-GCC thickness detected compressive chiasmopathy before visual defects became apparent on standard automated ...
