There are few reports of neuro-ophthalmologic involvement in Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSs). We described a case of unilateral optic atrophy in a 46-year-old-white man with CSs. The patient had severe bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis, hypereosinophilia (8%) and peripheral neuropathy. The visual acuity in his right eye was light perception. At the biomicroscopy there were no corneal and conjunctival lesions. Ophthalmoscopy showed a pale right optic disc and fluorangiography revealed a marked hypofluorescence of the disc at early phase of angiogram. We suggested that the optic atrophy was most probably due to vasculitis of the ciliary arteries.

Abstract

There are few reports of neuro-ophthalmologic involvement in Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSs). We described a case of unilateral optic atrophy in a 46-year-old-white man with CSs. The patient had severe bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis, hypereosinophilia (8%) and peripheral neuropathy. The visual acuity in his right eye was light perception. At the biomicroscopy there were no corneal and conjunctival lesions. Ophthalmoscopy showed a pale right optic disc and fluorangiography revealed a marked hypofluorescence of the disc at early phase of angiogram. We suggested that the optic atrophy was most probably due to vasculitis of the ciliary arteries.
