Abstract

CASE REPORT:

We report the case of a young patient with unilateral anterior ischemic optic neuropathy, with no known cardiovascular risk factors and visual acuity preserved with positive anticardiolipin antibodies as a unique find.

DISCUSSION:

Non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy in the context of antiphospholipid syndrome is an uncommon finding, but it must be considered in the diagnosis of the atypical anterior ischemic optic neuropathy.
