Optic neuritis as first clinical manifestations the multiple sclerosis.

Halilovic EA, Alimanovic I, Suljic E, Hassan NA - Mater Sociomed (2014)

Bottom Line: Ten(10) patients had ON as the first clinical manifestation of the disease which was statistically significant (X(2) =9,7 p=0,01) compared to the manifestation of other clinical signs of disease.In VF, the most common disturbances are in the centrocecal area.The RNFL thinning was verified in all patients with OCT.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To analyze the clinical signs of multiple sclerosis (MS) and show that optic neuritis is one of the first event, which indicates the development of disease.

Patients and methods: The study involved 89 cases in which it confirmed MS at the time of the March 2009-2011. Since ophthalmological parameters were analyzed visual acuity (VA), visual field (VF), and retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness of peripapillary rim by optic coherent tomography (OCT).

Results: Ten(10) patients had ON as the first clinical manifestation of the disease which was statistically significant (X(2) =9,7 p=0,01) compared to the manifestation of other clinical signs of disease. In VF, centrocecal scotomas were predominant in 50% of the subjects; the RNFL thinning of the neuroretinal rim was verified in all patients, most often in the upper quadrant. A month after pulse corticosteroid therapy, visual acuity in all patients with ON ranged from 0.6 to 1.0.

Conclusion: ON is one of the first MS clinical manifestation. In VF, the most common disturbances are in the centrocecal area. The RNFL thinning was verified in all patients with OCT.
