Abstract

A case report of optic neuritis, a previously unreported complication following endoscopic sinus surgery, is presented with a review of the diagnosis, postulated pathophysiology, and treatment. Optic neuritis is an inflammatory condition involving the optic nerve and should be considered in the differential diagnosis in patients who present with ocular complaints following endoscopic sinus surgery. Aggressive evaluation including computed tomography of the orbit and paranasal sinuses to rule out retroorbital hematoma, abscess or bony dehiscence, as well as ophthalmology consultation is essential. Prompt recognition of optic neuritis and institution of high dose corticosterods and antibiotics may prevent visual loss.
