Methanol poisoning optic neuropathy is a rare but serious condition that can cause bilateral blindness. It can occur after a deliberate or accidental ingestion of this toxic.

We report the case of methanol poisoning whose evolution was marked by the installation of bilateral optic atrophy despite treatment combining corticosteroid therapy and vitamin B.

Through this observation we recall the physiopathology as well as the clinical, therapeutic and evolutionary aspects of optic neuropathy by methanol intoxication.
