Abstract

Hemorrhage confined to the optic pathways is rare. We describe a patient with diffuse hemorrhage of the intracranial optic nerves, optic chiasm, and optic tracts, attributed to alcohol-induced coagulopathy. The hemorrhage resolved completely as the patient’s vision improved, and subsequent neuroimaging studies showed atrophy of the affected structures.
