Treatment of toxocaral optic neuritis


, : Treatment of toxocaral optic neuritis. Journal of Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology 2(2): 109-112

An 8-year-old male with poor vision from presumed toxocaral optic neuritis is presented. The diagnosis is supported by positive serum ELISA testing. Subtenon's depot injections of Kenalog resulted in excellent improvement and final visual acuity of 20/20. Early diagnosis with serum ELISA tests and vigorous treatment with subtenon's steroids are recommended.
