Anton’s syndrome

The syndrome is quite astonishing. In our current case – a bilateral ICH under Marcumar (Phenprocoumon, a vitamine K antagonist) – it wasn’t realized until the second day that the patient doesn’t see anything.

We reviewed the components of the neurological examination of the visual system including optokinetic reflexes.

Unfortunately I couldn’t prepare my talk so I did not bring some current literature, so here is one very good article on Gabriel Anton and his syndrome from 2011 (it is always important to stay current, yet the developments around Anton’s syndrome have not been too hard to follow).
