SUMMARY

Nenro-ophthalmologic examination including Goldmann perimetry was performed in 58 eyes of 29 patients with pseudotumor cerebri. Forty two eyes (72,4%) revealed some deficit in visual function and 15 (25,8%) had severe visual loss. This study confirmed the high incidence of visual impairment in this condition and revealed a higher frequency of severe visual loss when compared to other studies. These data serve to emphasize the need to active participation of the ophthalmologist in the management of this condition.
