Optical coherence tomography in papilledema and pseudopapilledema with and without optic nerve head drusen.
The slides showed normal optic nerves, papilledema, pseudopapilledema from optic nerve head drusen, and other disorders that should not be confused with papilledema, such as advanced glaucoma and optic atrophy.
The family physicians did less well than the other four groups in differentiating pseudopapilledema (optic disc drusen) from papilledema (P < .05).
This would, however, result in poor discrimination between true papilledema and pseudopapilledema. Indeed, the results indicated that the neuro-ophthalmologists more accurately identified pseudopapilledema than all other groups in the study, while the family physicians performed poorly in this area.
Despite this advantage, the neuro-ophthalmologists and ophthalmologists did statistically better than the family physicians, neurologists, and neurosurgeons in identifying both papilledema and pseudopapilledema.
