Bilateral lesions of the striate cortex and/or the optic radiations cause bilateral hemianopic defects, often with a sparing visual field portions. Large bilateral lesions can cause cortical blindness even though it is sometimes denied by the patient (Anton’s syndrome). In transient or persistent deficits the most frequent causes are emboli of the top of the basilar artery or atherosclerotic occlusive disease of the basilar artery with the involvement of the occipital lobes [4, 5]. For right posterior hemisphere visual-related deficits and lesions of the lower or upper bank of the calcarine fissure, see chapters by Acciarresi [pp.

In visual neglect, objects in one field are ignored while objects in the other field are not. Neglect usually occurs with large right cerebral lesions involving the temporal and parietal lobes, supplied by the PCAs, or parietal and frontal lobe structures, supplied by the middle cerebral arteries. In patients with PCA territory infarction, neglect is usually limited to visual stimuli, while thalamic, frontal, and anterior parietal lobe lesions usually cause multimodality neglect including visual, auditory and sensory stimuli.
