Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Leber's idiopathic stellate neuroretinitis (LISN) is a relatively uncommon clinical entity that is characterized by optic disc oedema and associated macular hard exudates. A broad range of causes can produce such a fundus appearance.

METHODS:

The clinical experience of the authors is combined with a review of the pertinent literature to describe the features of LISN and its differential diagnosis.

CONCLUSION:

A knowledge of the potential causes of neuroretinitis is important in order to formulate an effective management strategy.
