Abstract: Neuroretinitis is a form of papillitis associated with the delayed onset of an exudative macular star among other inflammatory ocular findings. We describe 4 patients with neuroretinitis who displayed several distinctive and novel findings on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) that include “epipapillary infiltrates” and an atypical pattern of inner retinal folds. The recognition of these findings on OCT may help in the early diagnosis of neuroretinitis.
