The signs of optic disc vasculitis usually include hyperemia and edema of the optic disc, tortuosity and dilation of retinal veins, and exudative hemorrhages of the optic disc and retina, while the damage to the visual field in impaired eyes was clinically insignificant. Therefore, clinical signs in the visual field and visual acuity are important for the differential diagnosis of it from other diseases with similar clinical presentations. Optic disc vasculitis is not uncommon in clinic. A selected case is presented as follows.
