    Abstract

    Four cases are described in which visual field defects followed enlargement of the third ventricle. Three were due to aqueduct stenosis while in one case a left cerebellar hemisphere tumour was discovered. The visual field defects comprised a unilateral scotoma, bilateral scotomata and, in two patients, incongruous bitemporal hemianopia.
