RÉSUMÉ
La cécité corticale est une pathologie grave, qui survient chez des enfants en bas âge atteints d’affections cérébro méningées. Nous rapportons quatre cas de cécité corticale infantile, vus au service d’ophtalmologie de l’Hôpital Central de Yaoundé. Il s’agit de deux filles et de deux garçons dont la moyenne d’âge était de un an et demi qui étaient tous référés des services d’hospitalisations pédiatriques à la suite de la prise en charge d’un neuropaludisme ou d’une méningite qui ont été sources de séquelles neurologiques.
ABSTRACT
Cortical blindness is a serious pathology, which occurs in young children with cerebromeningeal conditions. We report four cases of childhood cortical blindness, seen in the ophthalmology department of the Central Hospital of Yaoundé. These are two girls and two boys with an average age of one year and a half who were referred to pediatric hospitalization services following the management of neuromalaria or meningitis that have been a source of neurological sequelae.
