          Abstract

          We reported a 45-year-old man suffering from neuroretinitis with long-standing polyarteritis nodosa and anterior uveitis. Fluorescein angiography, made at the stage when optic disk swelling developed, demonstrated a hypofluorescent area at the temporal part of the optic disc presenting exudates in its prelaminar region. When the swelling of the optic disc had resolved as verified ophthalmoscopically, and the hypofluorescence was angiographically undetectable, a macular star was observed, showing a configuration corresponding to Henle’s layer.
