Encephalomyelitis and bilateral optic perineuritis after influenza vaccination.
Bull Soc Belge Ophtalmol. 2000(277):71-3. PMID: 11126677
We report the case of one patient suffering from headache, urinary retention, bilateral optic disc swelling and a mild bilateral visual defect after influenza vaccination. The presumptive diagnosis was encephalomyelitis with bilateral optic perineuritis caused by influenza vaccination. We stress on the interest to search for this aetiology in unexplained optic neuropathy.
