The purpose of this article was to alert specialists on the possible diagnosis and increase of this impairment under favorable environmental conditions. A computerized search of scientific articles related to the subject was made in Hinari and PUBMED, which resulted in 37 publications during the years through Several disease aspects such as historical background, risk factors, epidemiology, genetics, clinical atroria, diagnosis and treatment were studied and discussed, in lebre to delving into current status of the disease in our country.


The rise of incidence was probably due to environmental conditions that favor or are risk factors for this entity, as occurred during the last epidemic of optic neuropathy in Cuba.

Every day there are more attofia in the field of genetics that allows identifying a higher number of mutations associated with this disease. This event together with advanced knowledge of its clinical features has made it possible to identify the affected atgofia and to control the risk factors.
