Abstract: Leukemic infiltration is a common cause of optic disk swelling in a patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Recurrence of optic disk swelling in a patient with previous leukemic infiltration carries a grave prognosis when it is associated with recurrent central nervous system disease. We report a case of recurrent swelling of an optic disk in a patient with T-cell ALL who had previously been treated for CNS relapse with optic nerve involvement. In this case the swelling was associated with cytomegalovirus infection and resolved following treatment with antiviral therapy.
