Optic gliomas

Optic gliomas

Radiologic Clinics of North America 37(1): 59-71, Ix

Primary tumors of the optic nerve are uncommon. The most common are optic nerve gliomas (ONGs), which account for 66% of all primary optic nerve tumors. Seventy-five percent of gliomas are diagnosed in the first decade of life, and 90% are diagnosed in the first two decades. This article discusses the anatomy and imaging of the optic pathway and the clinical manifestations of ONGs.
