Abstract

COVID-19 illness is an evolving disorder, and many extrapulmonary manifestations have been reported. With this report, we are highlighting one of the neuro-ophthalmologic complications of Covid-19. We report a case of 16 years old boy who presented with complaints of rapid loss of vision and retroorbital pain in the Right eye during recovery from Covid -19 infection. Clinically, radiologically, CSF, Blood, and all other investigations suggest Probable Covid -19 Right Eye Optic Neuritis. The patient showed remarkable recovery following steroid therapy. This report aims to add a case to the limited literature available on Optic Neuritis following Covid-19 infection.
