ABSTRACT
It is well known that optokinetic responses are disturbed in the parietal lobe lesion. Also such a lesion manifests visual field defect. Authors predicted a superficial brain lesion sparing optic radiation in the parietal lobe, which might interfere optokinetic nystagmus. As a control group, one hundred healthy adults were examined and all of them showed normal symmetric optokinetic responses. In the study group, ten cases of cerebral paragonimiasis with their cystic formation in the posterior parieto-occipital area involving mostly Brodmann's are 18 and 19, seven cases of various brain tumors and eight cases of craniocerebral injury were observed for optokinetic nystagmus with correlation to visual field.
