Abstract: A 25-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for testing and follow-up of aseptic meningoencephalitis. After admission to our hospital, the patient suddenly complained of visual field disorder and a decrease of visual acuity in the right eye. We diagnosed aseptic meningitis complicated by retrobulbar neuritis using MRI. We immediately initiated weekly steroid pulse therapy, and eventually, marked improvement in visual acuity and the visual field disorder was observed without any late effects.
