Abstract: 

Purpose: To introduce a patient with bilateral optic neuritis due to brucellosis.
Patient and findings: A 21-year-old female was referred to us due to severe bilateral visual loss 3 weeks after a diagnosis of brucellosis. On examination she had bilateral optic neuritis, preretinal hemorrhage and retinal vacuities. The patient developed bilateral optic atrophy and severe visual loss despite full medical treatment.
Conclusion: Brucellosis can produce various types of eye involvement including vacuities, optic neuritis and retinal hemorrhage; therefore a detailed ocular examination including funduscopy should be performed in all patients with brucellosis. This disease should be included in the differential diagnosis of the etiologies of above mentioned ocular signs.
