Abstract

The authors present a case of 31 years old male, with superficial optic disc drusen, complicated with acute anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. The diagnosis was specified clinically, by fluorescein angiography, and by ultrasonography. The disease, very rare cited in the literature, is characteristic for the young adult and has a good prognosis. The unknown pathogeny gives an important place to the compression of the nervous fibres/ciliary circulation by the optic disc drusen, in a limited space and with a high density of optic fibres.
