A 56 years old woman with ethambutol associated visual loss underwent mfERG examination before and 4 months after discontinuation of ethambutol. P1 amplitudes and P1 implicit times were also compared with age-matched controls. The P1 amplitudes were significantly lower in the ethambutol treated case than the control group, and there was significant amplitude improvements at 4 mounts after discontinuation of ethambutol. This case report supports, that ethambutol could be toxic to the retina, as well as the optic nerve.

    Background: This study aimed to determine whether the properties of the late negative responses (LNRs) of the electroretinogram (ERG) elicited by sawtooth flicker are consistent with the characteristics of the photopic negative response generated by a light pulse (PhNR). Methods: ERG recordings...

    Optic disc pit (ODP) is a rare congenital defect within the optic nerve head. Macula elevation associated with ODP develops in 75-93% of the adult patients. Macular involvement in children with optic disc pit is rare, and only a few cases have been published to date. In the present case, we have...
