    Pediatric optic neuritis is a rare condition that is poorly understood. In a prospective study of outcomes through two years, Pineles et al. evaluated VA, recurrence risk, and final diagnoses. They found that even though vision was poor at presentation, recovery was possible for most patients, but associated neurologic conditions were common.
