In April 2018, a 20-year-old man with a history of methanol intoxication from an alcoholic drink two years ago, when he was 18 years old, was referred to Nikookari Eye Hospital in Tabriz, Iran. He was admitted to emergency service and underwent eight hours of hemodialysis at the time of poisoning. His past medical history was negative, and he did not take any medication after discharge. The patient had a driving license and never experienced any visual problems before. At presentation, his visual acuity was 160/200 in both eyes with the main complaint of visual field deterioration. Other neurologic exams and brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were reported normal by a neurologist. Optic disc cupping was near total in both eyes with a very narrow remaining rim. Optic disc cupping was very similar to glaucomatous cupping. Intraocular pressure was checked several times via Goldmann tonometry and was 13 mmHg. There was no history of refractive surgery leading to thin cornea. Based on this case, methanol poisoning can mimic glaucomatous optic disc cupping. This is the first case report of methanol toxicity-related optic disc cupping from Iran.
