Author(s): Maryam Naser, Nafiseh Hashemi

Abstract

Wallerian degeneration is a process that happens following nerve fiber damage, in which the part of the axon distal to the injury degenerates. This is also termed as anterograde or orthograde degeneration. We present a case of 16 year-old patient who was referred to neuro-ophthalmology clinic for glaucoma suspect evaluation which concluded to be related to Wallerian degeneration from neonatal intra-cranial hemorrhage.
