A patient had visual field loss and optochiasmatic arachnoiditis and subsequently developed other evidence of multiple sclerosis. The possibility is raised that many of the "idiopathic" cases of optochiasmatic arachnoiditis may have a similar origin. Special emphasis is placed on the functional role of the fibrosis in the pathogenesis of optochiasmatic arachnoiditis.
