Abstract

CASE REPORT:

We report the case of a 13 year-old male with bilateral optic neuritis after meningococcal C vaccination. He was treated with intravenous corticosteroids, but only showed visual recovery in one eye. A significant limitation of his sharp vision remained in his other eye.

DISCUSSION:

There have been no previously reported cases of optic neuritis after meningococcal C vaccination and for this reason we have reported this case. It is not possible, however, to exclude some other factor in the etiology of the optic neuritis, but the temporal relationship between the neuritis and the vaccination suggests this was the cause.
