    Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness in NMO Patients

    Background: Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is a demyelinating syndrome of the central nervous system. NMO might be underdiagnosed at early stages when patients have not yet developed the full spectrum of disease. The aim of this study was to analyze the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) with optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to compare RNFL measurements between NMO patients, patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), and healthy controls to determine whether differences in RNFL thickness could be an early diagnostic marker for NMO. Methods: In a cross-sectional study, eyes of 25 NMO patients, 25 RRMS patients, and 50 healthy controls underwent ...
