OBJECTIVE To identify factors associated with a high and low risk of developing multiple sclerosis after an initial episode of optic neuritis. METHODS Three hundred eighty-eight patients who experienced acute optic neuritis between July 1, 1988, and June 30, 1991, were followed up prospectively for the development of multiple sclerosis.
