Susac’s syndrome, also known as retinocochleocerebral vasculopathy, involves the triad of encephalopathy, vision, and hearing loss. In this chapter, we review the typical ophthalmological and auditory findings, the pathognomonic radiographic features, and the general clinical course of Susac’s syndrome. In addition, we discuss the role of empiric therapeutic approaches involving corticosteroids and immunosuppressants.
