Optic neuritis has many mimics. Careful history and fundus examination are paramount in making the correct diagnosis. Here we present a case of bilateral vision loss in a 15-year-old male who subsequently developed hypertensive crises. Subsequent evaluation showed pheochromocytoma and genetic screening confirmed Von Hippel–Lindau disease.
