We report a case of a 62-year-old-woman with a 17 year-history of axial and peripheral spondyloarthritis associated to a crohn disease, treated with tumor necrosis alpha inhibitors, who developed an asymetric retrobulbar optic neuritis that promptly responded to a high dose of steroids. Key Words: optic neuritis, crohn disease, spondyloarthritis
