Abstract

The present work describes the presentation, etiology, diagnosis, and management of delayed visual loss, a severe though rare complication of blunt head trauma. Delayed visual loss is manifested by the occurrence of blindness days to months after the traumatic event. This crucial time interval can preclude appropriate treatment. There are no definitive methods to predict its possible appearance, nor is there a well-defined therapeutic approach. A high index of suspicion is important for timely diagnosis and treatment.
