VISUAL SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH STROKE – REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE (Abstract): The main syptoms of a stroke are general sensory loss, weakness or paralysis of limbs or face, together with visual defficiencies, language impairement, dizziness and gaze abnormalities. The neurological examination of the patients with stroke is mainly oriented towards motor manifestations, underestimating the other symptoms. Visual abnormalities or visual loss are among the most invalidating sequelae after surviving a stroke. The main sources of blood supply involved in lesions of visual pathways are the central artery of the retina, the ophtalmic artery, the anterior and posterior choroidal arteries, the posterior cerebral artery. The types of visual disorders related to ischemic or hemorrhagic strokes are very numerous, going from transient symptoms as transient monocular visual loss (TMVS), visual field impairment, disorders of ocular monements until complete loss of vision. The complete homonymous hemianopia is the most frequent visual symptom associated with stroke, followed by partial hemianopia, superior or inferior quadrantanopia The correct diagnosis of a visual symptom can help to localise the lesion and to initiate the most appropriate treatment. Moreover, the presence of the transient symptoms diagnosed before a stroke, can prevent the occurrence of the following stroke.
