Background: Cortical Blindness is most commonly caused by stroke or traumatic brain injury. The case study has the unique function of outlining the story of a young patient who incurred multiple gunshot wounds in an incident that ultimately transpired into a complete and permanent cortical blindness.
Case presentation: The present subject exhibits cortical blindness in the absence of either etiology. The proposed etiology is that of perioperative hypoxic seizures. Neuroanatomical and pathophysiological framework is established to elucidate the conditions surrounding the outcome.
Discussion: It is known that acute neuronal ischemia presents as drastically urgent to the tune of a five-minute intervention window, and it is learned that the prognosis of recovery from cortical blindness is statistically confined to an interval of around six months. Statistical context paves the way for a practical perspective on rehabilitation for patients with vision loss.
