Although it is clear that neuroretinitis can occur in the setting of MS, it is still uncertain whether it is causally related or coincidental. Importantly, whether an episode of neuro retinitis increases the risk for the future development of MS remains controversial. Similarly, the question of whether an episode of neuroretinitis counts as a demyelinating attack remains unanswered. Longitudinal studies are needed to better answer these questions about MS and neuroretinitis.
