Optic neuritis (ON) is an acute inflammatory disorder of the optic nerve and is characterized by a unilateral sudden visual loss in the affected eye, often accompanied by periocular pain. We report a classical case of neuroretinitis (a subtype of ON) with vitiligo in a 52-year-old female. Vitiligo is associated with a few ocular disorders, and neuroretinitis is not one of them. Autoimmune etiologies are associated with both the diseases. To the best of our knowledge and after extensive literature search, this is probably the first reported case of neuroretinitis with vitiligo.
