Two infants suffered from transient bilateral loss of vision without ophthalmoscopic changes during the course of infectious inflammatory disease of the central nervous system. In one child, the amaurosis was accompanied by loss of the pupillary reaction to light; in the other, the pupils reacted well to light. The implication of this difference in the localization of the lesions responsible for visual loss is discussed. In one of the patients bilateral subdural effusions are postulated as having been the cause of the transient bilateral blindness.
