    Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in the Junctional Scotoma of Traquair

    A 43-year-old woman presented with a right-sided visual field defect in the right eye. The visual acuity was normal and there was a right relative afferent pupillary defect. Formal visual field testing revealed a junctional scotoma of Traquair. The fundus examination showed optic atrophy in the right eye and optical coherence tomography demonstrated unilateral band atrophy. Neuroimaging revealed a sellar and suprasellar cystic pituitary adenoma for which she underwent a transsphenoidal drainage. We demonstrate the clinical and radiographic features of the junctional scotoma of Traquair and describe the differentiating features vs the junctional scotoma.
