We report a female patient with an unusual suprasellar meningioma presenting with a right-sided inferior altitudinal visual field defect. Two causative factors were identified at surgery: an aberrant ophthalmic artery found lying on the superior aspect of the optic nerve, and marked compression of the nerve superiorly against the falciform ligament.
