Evaluation of long-term damage to the retina in MOGAD patients

MOGAD patients suffer severe optic neuritis, which can lead to damage to the nerve fibers in the retina. In this study, researchers assessed whether retinal damage continues accruing even without active relapses, by using a technique called optical coherence tomography (OCT). They found that new instances of retinal damage are unlikely to occur without an active MOGAD optic neuritis relapse, but the effects of the damage caused by any episode can continue for up to 1 year.
