Background: Optic Perineuritis (OPN) is an uncommon condition that has been reported with many systemic disorders.
Methods: We report a geriatric patient who suffered from acute unilateral vision loss and OPN in association with mucormycosis. We also included a brief literature review pertinent to OPN.
Results/Discussion: OPN has been reported in association with many systemic disorders, it has infrequently been reported with mucormycosis sinusitis.
Conclusions: OPN may develop secondary to mucormycosis sinusitis.
Keywords: Optic Perineuritis (OPN); Pathophysiology; Relative Afferent Pupillary Defect (RAPD)
