This module focuses on the clinical presentation, neuroradiologic features, and management of primary optic nerve sheath tumors. Meningiomas, as they are called, are benign intracranial neoplasms that generally involve the parasellar and orbital regions of the visual pathway. There, they affect the cranial nerves within the cavernous sinus and the optic nerve anteriorly. The resultant loss of vision is progressive, and treatment involves a range of methods such as observation, surgery, and more recently radiation therapy.
