Twenty-one patients with documented neurofibromatosis had MR examinations to evaluate possible intracranial disease. In five cases the indication was a known or suspected optic glioma. Two patients were examined because of a history of seizures; the rest were examined as part of a baseline evaluation. Eighteen patients showed evidence of signal hyperintensity on T2-weighted images. Lesions involved the optic nerves, optic chiasm, optic tracts, lateral geniculate body, optic radiations, basal… CONTINUE READING
