Abstract

A 58-year-old man presented with optic disc edema as a rare association with spinocerebellar degeneration (SCD). The patient also had chronic idiopathic intestinal pseudo-obstruction with hypoalbuminemia. No elevation of intraspinal pressure and no intracranial lesion was observed. The hypoalbuminemia reacted promptly to treatment, whereas the optic disc edema regressed gradually. An association between SCD and optic atrophy has often been described, but to our knowledge this is the first report of SCD in association with optic disc edema.
