Foster Kennedy Syndrome: A Case Report
Foster Kennedy Syndrome is a classic, yet rare, neuro-ophthalmologic syndrome due to an intracranial mass, most often a tumor, that consists of optic atrophy on the same side of the lesion and contralateral papilledema. We present the case of a 48-year-old female patient with decreased visual acuity and the typical clinical features described above due to a sphenoid wing meningioma. Although not a common condition, Foster Kennedy Syndrome should always be kept in mind in a patient with visual disturbances secondary to an intracranial mass.
