Abstract

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a major public health problem. Liver diseases such as cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma are the main causes of mortality and morbidity associated with this viral infection. Ocular manifestations may also arise during the course of HBV infection. We herein present a 44-year-old male with bilateral optic neuropathy revealing chronic HBV infection.
