A case of a 40-year old marine with bilateral optic neuritis and a branch retinal artery occlusion after vaccination is presented. Blood investigations showed no abnormalities. Cerebrospinal fluid studies revealed a lymphocytic pleocytosis and IgG antibodies against hepatitis A and rabies. Computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain were negative. A diagnosis of vaccine-induced auto-immune demyelinative optic neuritis was made. The clinical picture improved after systemic corticosteroid treatment.
