Case report: We report the case of a 38-year-old woman, without remarkable medical history but whose brother is being screened for multiple sclerosis. She reports decreased visual acuity (AV) in her left eye. Funduscopy reveals papilledema with hard macular exudates in a star pattern. After being asked the patient says that she owns a cat. Possible CSD is suspected and antibiotherapy is prescribed. After 2 months of follow-up the patient shows recovery. Discussion: Neuroretinitis associated with CSD is uncommon. A good anamnesis and ophtalmological screening are crucial for correct diagnosis and treatment.
