Anton’s syndrome- the neurologic mystery of denial
Tanmay Gandhi, Sourya Acharya, Samarth Shukla
Anton's syndrome is a neurologic condition in which patients deny their blindness despite objective evidence of visual loss. It is a rare extension of cortical blindness in which, in addition to the injury to the occipital cortex, other cortical centres are also affected. Ironically the patients confabulate and stick to their stance that they are normal.
