Abstract: Background:The authors present a novel case of a hemangioblastoma of the optic nerve producing bilateral optic tract edema in a patient with von Hippel–Lindau disease (VHL). This is the only case in the literature documenting optic tract edema secondary to a hemangioblastoma of the optic nerve.Case Description:The patient was a 34-year-old female in whom this lesion was causing retro-orbital pain and proptosis. She had previously lost vision in the symptomatic eye secondary to a retinal hemangioblastoma. The o… Show more

“…While most of these lesions are cerebral in location, a cranial nerve origin of these tumors is infrequent (8). Only 22 cases of HBL (including our case) arising from the optic nerve have been described, 18 of which are in the English literature and 4 reports are in Japanese (9). HBLs arising from the sella, stalk and hypothalamus has also been reported but are excluded from this review, which attempts to focus primarily on visual outcomes of pure ONHs.…”

“…They often mimic meningiomas or optic nerve gliomas and are frequently misdiagnosed preoperatively. There has been only one other case of a HBL of the optic nerve producing optic tract oedema (9). We describe a case of an ONH without VHL, mimicking a meningioma preoperatively with optic tract edema.…”

“…Vision loss in VHL may also be due to retinal lesions, but neuro-ophthalmological evaluation may raise suspicion for optic nerve haemangioblastoma. 6 As in our patient, contrast enhanced MRI of the orbit and the brain is helpful in these cases.…”

“…Ipsilateral optic nerve haemangiblastoma produced optic tract oedema, which resolved after resection of the prechiasmal tumour. 6 The preoperative differential diagnosis for this tumour based on imaging studies has included glioma, meningioma, and neurilemoma (''neurinoma''). Unlike gliomas, haemangioblastomas enhance brightly with gadolinium as in our case, allowing differentiation of these tumours.…”

“…Until now, 20 cases of optic nerve hemangioblastoma including this present case have been reported in the English literature ( 29 40 ). Fourteen of the 20 cases (70%) were associated with VHL.…”
