Maculopathies that resemble optic neuropathies.


This chapter outlines some diseases in which diagnosis of retinal pathology can prove difficult and often mislead one to think of optic nerve disease. Clinicians should consider these entities when atypical features or unexplained visual loss occurs. A careful medical history, review of systems, and the appropriate use of ancillary studies (as outlined) can provide insights helpful in making the correct diagnosis.
