Recurrent idiopathic neuroretinitis as a spectrum of atypical optic neuritis: a case report and literature review.Arq Bras Oftalmol. 2018 Jan-Feb; 81(1):70-72.AB
Recurrent idiopathic neuroretinitis is an inflammatory optic neuropathy characterized by optic nerve edema and macular star, associated with painless and recurrent episodes of visual loss, poor visual prognosis, and visual field defects related to nerve fiber layer injury. The disorder is sometimes mistaken for atypical optic neuritis. However, early diagnosis is important for visual recovery. Long-term immunosuppression has been shown to reduce the rate of recurrence and protect against severe and irreversible vision loss.
