Rapid response of syphilitic optic neuritis to posterior sub-tenon's steroid injection.
J Clin Neuroophthalmol. 1992 Mar; 12(1):6-7; discussion 8-9.JC

Abstract

An HIV-positive man with subacute syphilitic meningitis developed severe bilateral visual loss from optic neuritis. His visual acuity improved remarkably within 24 hours after single posterior sub-Tenon's injections of triamcinolone (Kenalog) were given. Periocular steroid injections should be considered as an adjunctive treatment of syphilitic optic neuritis.
