    Optic neuritis interferes with optical coherence tomography and magnetic resonance imaging correlations

    Background: Retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thinning is associated with brain atrophy in multiple sclerosis (MS). An influence of optic neuritis is well documented but sparsely investigated. Recently, the retinal ganglion cell layer (GCL) has been shown to provide superior information regarding visual function and retinal neurodegeneration as compared with RNFL. Objective: To investigate the association of white and grey matter brain volume with peripapillary RNFL and macular GCL in MS patients with and without a history of optic neuritis. Methods: 63 patients with relapsing–remitting MS were included in a two-centre cross-sectional prospective study. All patients underwent retinal examination ...
