We report a case of chiasmal optic neuritis in a patient who had been diagnosed as multiple sclerosis, and was presented with bitemporal hemianopsia. The brain MRI revealed a high signal lesion with focal enhancement in optic chiasm, and the visual evoked potential functionally supported it. This is the first case of chiasmal optic neuritis in multiple sclerosis with temporally and spatially disseminated lesions.
Key words: Optic chiasm, Multiple sclerosis, Visual evoked potentials
