  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Two cases of neuritis retrobulbalis due to Ethambutol, a new antituberculosis drug, were detected among 220 patients who had been administered the agent.

In these two cases, bitemporal hemianopsia with decresed visual acuity, and dyschromato-psia without any remarkable changes of the ocular fundus were obserbed.

The ocular manifestations showd remarkable improvement within about 5 months by active treatment.
