Answer

The mechanism for hemianopsia is similar to that for hemiparesis and is dependent on the location of the lesions. Uram and Zullabigo reported hemianopsia in 11 (44%) of 25 patients. [44] In 2009, Shimakawa et al reported a rare case of recurrent homonymous hemianopsia that became permanent. [45]
