Abstract
Clinical case

The case is presented of a 73-year-old male patient who referred to having black and white vision. Computed tomography showed normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). Magnetic resonance imaging was not performed because the patient refused to undergo further examinations.

Discussion

Achromatopsia may be the first or only NPH symptom. It may be prudent to ask patients with NPH regarding colour vision.

Discusión

La acromatopsia puede ser la primera o la única clínica de HNT. Puede ser prudente preguntar a los pacientes con HNT con respecto a la visión de color.
