Papilledema

Contributor: John Chen, MD

61-year-old male presented with new onset floaters and found to have prominent papilledema and peripapillary hemorrhages from a combination of hypertensive emergency, sleep apnea, carbon monoxide poisoning, and aseptic meningitis (A).  Each of these alone would unlikely have caused such a dramatic picture of hemorrhage and disc edema.

  The papilledema and hemorrhages resolved on four month follow-up (B).
