Abstract

Purpose: To report on a unilateral optic nerve reaction appearing 9-10 hours after vaccination against hepatitis B. Methods: To describe the case and discuss the underlying mechanisms. Therewas a scintillating scotoma leaving a permanent inferior notch in the visual held, but central vision was left normal and with only a slight affection of colour perception. Shortly the optic nervehead appeared engorged, thenslightly ischaemic, but was hardly left with evidence of atrophy. Results: Immune-based reactions could hardly be held responsible, multiplesclerosis was unlikely, and ultrasonography excluded optic nervehead drusen. An optic nerve migraine mechanism is probable, possibly with the vaccination having acted as the trigger.
