    Three patients were found to have visual field defects which involved homonymous horizontal sectors of the visual fields, thus mimicking field defects associated with lesions of the lateral geniculate nucleus. Computed tomography provided anatomical evidence that the responsible lesion involved the optic radiations rather than the lateral geniculate nucleus.
