A patient with Birdshot retinochoroidopathy that presented with isolated optic nerve swelling is reported. Neuroimaging and serum testing for infectious or inflammatory etiologies were unremarkable. Indocyanine angiography revealed multiple round dark fundus lesions in both eyes. This raised suspicion for Birdshot retinochoroidopathy, which was confirmed with genetic testing. Ocular inflammation resolved following treatment with mycophenolate mofetil and a dexamethasone intravitreal implant.
