Anton's syndrome

Anton's syndrome Anton syndrome , occasionally known as Anton-Babinski syndrome, is a form of cortical blindness in which the individual denies the visual impairment. The individual may attempt to walk, bumping into objects and injuring himself. Anton syndrome is caused by damaging the occipital lobes bilaterally or by disrupting the pathway from the primary visual cortex into the visual association cortex.
