Bilateral Optic Nerve Sheath Meningioma with Intracanalicular and Intracranial Component in a 25-year-old Saudi Patient.

Badr MA, Elkhamary SM, Al Sabbagh S, Al Turjoman A - Middle East Afr J Ophthalmol (2008)

Bottom Line: A meningioma is a benign neoplastic lesion from meningothelial cells of the meninges.They usually involve the intracanalicular portion of the optic nerve but may extend into the optic canal and through it to occupy the intracranial space.The diagnosis was delayed more than six years from initial symptoms.

ABSTRACT
Bilateral optic nerve sheath meningioma is rare. A meningioma is a benign neoplastic lesion from meningothelial cells of the meninges. They usually involve the intracanalicular portion of the optic nerve but may extend into the optic canal and through it to occupy the intracranial space. We present a case of 25-year-old Saudi female with bilateral optic nerve sheath meningioma. The diagnosis was delayed more than six years from initial symptoms.

Non-contrast CT images, coronal and axial CT scan showed linear calcification of the nerve suggestive of a tram track appearance with mild hyperostosis.

Figure 0003: Non-contrast CT images, coronal and axial CT scan showed linear calcification of the nerve suggestive of a tram track appearance with mild hyperostosis.

Mentions: Non-contrast coronal and axial CT images (Fig 3 A–B) clearly detect the linear calcification along the optic nerve sheath - suggestive of a tram track appearance with mild hyperostosis. CT and MRI confirmed the diagnosis of bilateral optic nerve sheath meningioma.
