PURPOSE. To describe a patient with Leber miliary aneurysms who fulfilled the criteria for clinically definite multiple sclerosis (MS) in remission. METHODS. Case report. RESULTS. We performed a complete ophthalmologic examination in a 45-year-old woman who was referred to our department for retinal vascular abnormalities in her left eye. Twenty-eight years previously, the patient had been diagnosed with MS. Following a complete ophthalmologic examination, the patient was diagnosed with Leber miliary aneurysms and coincident MS in remission. To our knowledge, there are no previous reports describing association between Leber miliary aneurysms and MS. CONCLUSIONS. Leber miliary aneurysms have been found in association with multiple ocular and systemic syndromes. In this report, we suggest another possible systemic association (MS) with Leber miliary aneurysms (Eur J Ophthalmol 2009; 19: 690-3)
