    Abstract

    A patient presenting with persistent headache of vascular quality and an intermittently progressive chiasmal syndrome had a blue-domed haemorrhagic cyst beneath the right optic nerve and underwent surgical drainage with good results. As prompt surgical intervention may proivde significant return of visual function, detailed diagnostic evaluation of similar cases is recommended.
