Abstract: The optic neuropathy due to methanol poisoning is a toxic neuropathy most frequently observed in developing countries. It is characterized by acute loss of visual function around 12 to 24 hours after ingestion of methanol. We report a patient with sudden visual loss after deliberate ingestion of methanol seen in a chemical dependency unit of Duque de Caxias, RJ, Brazil.
