Leukoaraiosis as a cause of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy--a case report

, : Leukoaraiosis as a cause of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy--a case report. Klinika Oczna 116(1): 32-34

The paper presents the case of a 61-year-old man with specific symptoms of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. The head computed tomographyscans revealed multiple leukoaraiotic lesions. Leukoaraiosis is a disease affecting small cerebral vessels. Its pathogenesis is associated with a chronic inflammatory process and ischemic vascular endothelial dysfunction which reduce the cerebral blood flow. It cannot be ruled out that this process, alongside with Horton disease, hypertension, diabetes and atherosclerosis, may also be involved in the pathogenesis of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. leukoaraiosis, non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy.
