Özet

Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis is a rare disease of central nervous system caused by defective measles virus. Chorioretinitis with macular involvement is the mostly observed ocular finding in the disease. Other reported ocular findings in the disease are cortical blindness, hemianopsia, nystagmus, extraocular muscle paresis and optic atrophy. We present a rare case of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis with isolated bilateral optic neuritis as the only ocular finding without macular involvement.
