Fourty-seven-year-old woman with 5-year history of progressive decreased left eye vision. Optical coherence tomography showed optic nerve atrophy (left > right) and brain MRI revealed T2 hyperintense signal along the course of left optic radiations. We present a case of a trans-synaptic degeneration of the optic radiation in a patient with confirmed optic atrophy. Trans-synaptic degeneration of the optic radiation without associated infarct or inflammatory disease has not been reported before in patients with optic atrophy.
