  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Nine cases with ocular toxicity induced by Ethambutol were presented. These cases repre-sented about 13 per cent of total cases which were treated for tuberculosis with Ethambutol for the past period of 13 months. Our routine examination included the test of visual acuity, chromatic sense, central and peripheral visual field as well as slit lamp examination and ophthalmoscopy. Critical flicker fusion frequency was explored at every visit. Fluorescein angiogra-phy and ERG were often made. Two patients of our observation were diabetic.
