EURORAD ESR

Case 1473

Optic Nerve Glioma

Author(s)
P. Dewandel, Ph. Demaerel
 
Patient
female, 13 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    MRI of the orbits
     

    demonstrates on the axial SE T2-weighted image a mass of high signal intensity containing several small, hypo-intense areas, causing anterior displacement of the ocular bulb.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MRI of the orbits;

    Axial fat-suppressed Gd-enhanced T1-weighted image shows pronounced enhancement of the mass, with hypo-intense areas. Intratumoral, linear signal void corresponding to vascular structure is also seen.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MRI of the orbits;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Arteriography of the right internal carotid artery

    visualizes kinking and bowing of the ophthalmic artery around a mass of 2 cm in diameter containing pathologic vessels. Extensive venous drainage to the facial vein is noted.
