A 6-year-old intact male Maltese dog presented with a history of blindness and ataxia. Neuro-ophthalmic examinationrevealed dilated pupils with absent pupillary light reflexes and menace response in both eyes. Mild peripapillary edema was noted inthe fundus of the right eye. After magnetic resonance imaging, the dog was provisionally diagnosed with meningoencephalitis ofunknown etiology. Follow-up funduscopy was performed to monitor the condition of the optic discs for three years. Despite of thetreatment with prednisolone, the optic nerve progressed to atrophy and the dog couldn’t restore vision.
