Quadrantanopia (or quadrant anopia, as two words) refers to an anopia affecting a quarter of the field of vision.

It can be associated with a lesion of an optic radiation.[1] If Meyer's loop is lesioned, the vision loss is superior; if the parietal path is lesioned, the vision loss is inferior.[2]
