Recurrence of periphlebitis retinae in multiple sclerosis

Recurrence of periphlebitis retinae in multiple sclerosis

Periphlebitis retinae (PR) in multiple sclerosis (MS) is defined as ophthalmoscopically visible cuffs around veins in the otherwise normal retina. PR in MS may be of a recurring nature; this maybe the first study in which PR in MS has recurred. A recurrence of PR in MS reflects the neurological progress. The material is unique because of the span of years these patients have been followed. in the 4 patients there presented the interval between the 2 episodes of PR was 16, 13, 5 and 0.5 yr respectively.
