Abstract

Optic nerve perineuritis and anterior ischemic optic neuropathy are rare complications of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). A 22-year-old patient with AIDS experienced perineuritis and anterior ischemic optic neuropathy while being treated for infection by Mycobacterium avium- intracellulare. A Humphrey visual field test revealed an inferior altitudinal field defect. Findings of a magnetic resonance image (MRI) of the orbits were consistent with optic nerve perineuritis of the right eye.
