Thank you so much for your reply.
It appears that your husband has papilledema (swelling of the optic nerve) of the left eye which can be caused by increased pressure in the orbit
of the left eye, transient stroke in the optic nerve head blood vessel of the left eye, sarcoidosis
, orbital lymphoma, viral infection of the optic nerve head, temporal arteritis, orbital pseudotumor cerebri, non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neurolopathy and recurrent brain arachoid cyst causing increased left orbital/brain pressure. Although the MRI was normal, I suggest that special contrast MRI studies with very thin-cut, with close focus on the arachnoid area, in addition to closer re-evaluation by a neuro-ophthalmologist
specialist, checking temporal arteritis with ESR, and C-reactive protein. In addition, if not already done, a Humphrey Visual Field test
, Topography and possibly Fluorescein of the eye may be considered. At this time, I suggest that he would benefit from oral prednisone to help quiet any persisting inflammation.
