Evans syndrome (ES) is a rare disease characterized by simultaneous development of autoimmune hemolytic anemia and immune thrombocytopenia with or without immune neutropenia. We report the first case of ES presenting as retrobulbar neuritis. Purpose of this report is to create awareness about ES. A 25-year-old female presented with sudden painful loss of vision. Neuroimaging confirmed retrobulbar neuritis. She had menorrhagia and iron-deficiency anemia. She had pallor, hepatosplenomegaly, and hemolytic anemia. She was treated with intravenous steroids. ES is a disease of high morbidity.
