Abstract

SCUBA diving has become increasingly popular, but it is a sport with high risks. It has been widely accepted that the neurologic sequelae of decompression illness (DCI) are confined to the spinal cord. However, cortical blindness is very rare in the central nervous system DCI. We report a case of DCI who showed cortical blindness and MRI abnormalities. The cortical blindness improved after serial hyperbaric oxygenation therapy with the USN table 6A protocol.
