Optic neuritis (ON) can be defined as a pathologic process, whereby inflammation of one or both optic nerves leads to visual dysfunction. It can be a presenting symptom of various pediatric central nervous system disorders and may be associated with dramatic visual loss. It is widely accepted that in children, attacks of ON usually occur following a febrile illness, tend to affect both eyes, are frequently associated with swollen discs, improve rapidly, with good outcomes. The rate of conversion to multiple sclerosis (MS) is not exactly determined; studies have reported rates from 4% to 36%.The purpose of this study was to report clinical features, neuroimaging, and visual outcome in pediatric optic neuritis (ON) in Indian population.
