Abstract

We present a case report of a young adult male who sustained severe head injury in a bomb blast. He was later detected to have traumatic chiasmal syndrome as well as cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhoea. There were no other complications associated. He was managed conservatively. A review of the present literature and current understanding of the pathogenesis of this intriguing syndrome is presented. Traumatic chiasmal syndrome must be recognized in cases of head injury which can be associated with life threatening complications.
