A 44-year-old man presented with severe right visual loss. The right fundus examination showed marked optic disc oedema associated with partial macular star. Serological blood tests for infectious agents were all negative. Serum aquaporin-4 antibody was negative but anti-MOG (myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein) was positive. Magnetic resonance revealed extensive lesion in right optic nerve. There was no visual improvement after intravenous therapy. Patient had no further attacks after follow-up. Optic disc oedema with macular star is found in several infectious and non-inflammatory disorders, but it has not been reported in optic neuritis (ON) associated with autoantibodies to myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (anti-MOG).
