ABSTRACT
Leptospirosis is a zoonotic infection caused by spirochetes leptospira. It presents with both ocular and systemic manifestations. Neuroretinitis has been reported in the few cases of leptospirosis. We present a case of leptospirosis with unilatertal neuroretinitis presenting with sudden loss of vision, optic disc edema and macular star. Leptospirosis was confirmed by serological test and the disease responded optimally to specific therapy.
