Optic Neuropathies

Update item information
Identifier 91_48
Title Optic Neuropathies
Subject Neuroretinitis
Description Optic disc edema with a macular star figure may occur in infectious diseases (eg, cat-scratch disease, syphilis, tuberculosis, Lyme disease), inflammatory diseases (eg, sarcoid), ischemic diseases (anterior ischemic optic neuropathy), and in papilledema. Infectious causes should be sought in patients with a typical acute course, infectious exposure risk factors, or vitreous cells. The macular exudate is due to leakage from the optic disc itself and not from the retinal vasculature.
