neuroretinitis

Inflammation of the optic nerve head and adjacent retina. It is characterized by optic disc oedema, loss of vision, macular exudates, which frequently form a star-like pattern, and whitish lesions scattered throughout the fundus. A common cause is viral infection and it may also appear as a complication of syphilis.
