    Abstract

    We report the case of a 61-year-old woman who presented bilateral blindness at the age of nineteen. Although she did not receive any treatment, she did not present any other symptoms through 40 years of follow-up. After reviewing the literature, we have not found any case of bilateral blindness as the first manifestation of TD without further progression of the disease despite the absence of treatment.
