10 This patient has a homonymous quadrantanopia
. Given the visual field shown for the left eye, what visual field defect would be found in the right eye'
Within 1 hour, the symptoms had improved with limb weakness fully resolved, and NIHSS score was 2 (facial paralysis and quadrantanopia
More rarely, hemianopia can affect one-quarter of the vision in each eye (referred to as quadrantanopia

in 2 eyes (4.1%) within 1 week after onset.
The physical examination revealed a right homonymous upper quadrantanopia
. The neurologic examination was within normal limits, except for the visual deficit and unequal pupil size.
He had a right homonomous hemianopia, a left inferior quadrantanopia
, right lower extremity hyperreflexia, and right extensor plantar response.
Visual field testing revealed left homonymous superior quadrantanopia
with normal visual acuity.
Other defects that can be seen are superior quadrantanopia
Visual field testing revealed bilateral inferior quadrantanopia
. When he was 11 years old he attracted our attention during clinical evaluation of epilepsy.
