Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a viral disease that can show different clinical findings in different patients, mainly affecting the respiratory tract and progressing with the outcome of pneumonia. Involvement of the virus in different ways, from the brain to the gastrointestinal-genitourinary system, except the respiratory tract, has been reported in so many publications so far. Although eye involvement due to the disease is a relatively rare condition, it may cause visual problems either by the direct neurotoxic effect of the virus, autoimmune reactions, or some vascular pathologies. These findings usually occur in the subacute-advanced period of the disease or after the infection. In this case report, it is aimed to present the magnetic resonance imaging findings and clinical findings of a case with unilateral papillitis without optic neuritis findings in the early period of COVID-19, unlike the others.

Keywords: COVID-19, optic neuritis, papillitis.
