  • Foster-Kennedy Syndrome

    The original description of the Foster Kennedy syndrome included the clinical triad of optic disc pallor in one eye, optic disc edema in the other eye, and reduced olfaction[] A histopathologic study of the excised specimen disclosed a meningioma.[] An 11-year-old boy with a juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma developed optic disc pallor in one eye and optic disc edema in the other eye (Foster Kennedy Syndrome [FKS])[]

  • Optic Nerve Glioma

    Course: In summary, this is an 8-year-old patient with a known history of NF1 now with acute awareness of complete vision loss, OS, with associated optic disc pallor and edema[] The relationship between arachnoid hyperplasia in optic nerve glioma and meningioma of the optic nerve sheath in childhood is discussed.[] Funduscopy revealed right optic disc pallor. Examination of the left eye was unremarkable.[]

  • Chiasmal Syndrome

Women are more prone to develop meningiomas.[] Optic disc pallor may be apparent with an ophthalmoscope if the insult is longstanding.[]

  • Primary Optic Atrophy

    Differential Diagnosis Optic atrophy versus other causes of optic disc pallor: • Pallor of optic disc in partial optic atrophy must be differentiated from other causes of[] […] in the Foster-Kennedy's syndrome, they are more common in patients with giant cell arteritis affecting the discs at different time) Kennedy-Foster's syndrome (presence of meningioma[] The dural sheath may be involved mimicking optic nerve meningioma.[]

  • Orbital Apex Syndrome

    disc pallor and central retinal artery occlusion.[] The tumor was partially removed and fibroblastic meningioma was confirmed pathologically.[] Dilated funduscopy of the right eye revealed mild optic disc pallor, surrounding pale retina with a cherry-red spot at the fovea with cattle track sign.[]

  • Tolosa-Hunt Syndrome

    […] nerve damage and consequent optic disc pallor or swelling.[] Histopathological examination revealed a meningioma with a papillary aspect and some mitoses.[] […] on MRI, and the patient underwent surgical resection of the mass with resultant histopathological finding of cavernous sinus meningioma.[]

  • Optic Atrophy

    CONCLUSIONS: Deeply buried ODD may be associated with NAION causing irreversible visual loss and optic disc pallor, a condition easily mistaken for atypical ON.[] […] include: Compressive – secondary to papilledema, tumor, bony growth (fibrous dysplasia, osteopetrosis), thyroid eye disease, chiasmal (pituitary etc), optic nerve sheath meningioma[] ., pituitary adenoma, optic nerve meningioma) Aneurysm Hydrocephalus Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC): idiopathic elevated ICP, often in obese young females Cortical venous sinus[]

  • Suprasellar Tumor

    Neurological examination revealed pallor of the left optic disc. There was no extraocular dysmotility or facial numbness.[] Suprasellar meningiomas tend to affect middle-aged men and women, account for about 10 percent of all meningiomas, and occur near the pituitary gland and optic nerves at the[] Mount Sinai Health System and its team of fellowship-trained skull base surgeons, led by Joshua Bederson, MD, specializes in diagnosis and treatment of suprasellar meningiomas[]

  • Optic Nerve Infarction

    Figure 3: Optic disc pallor is usually seen 6-8 weeks after the initial ischemic event.[] We present a case of PION occurring after nonocular surgery (pterional meningioma excision).[] Signs Normal or decreased visual acuity, decreased color vision, RAPD, central or altitudinal visual field defect (usually inferior and large), swollen optic disc (pallor[]

  • Olfactory Groove Meningioma

    Visual impairment, including optic disc swelling and pallor, was found in 45% of our patients on clinical examination.[] Encompassing approximately 12% of all meningiomas in the base of the skull, an olfactory groove meningioma (OGM) arises from the arachnoidal cells located in the lamina cribrosa[] Meningiomas 301 Parasagittal Meningiomas 309 Falcine Meningiomas 319 Temporal Bone Meningiomas 393 Posterior Clinoidal Meningiomas 399 Petroclival and Upper Clival Meningiomas[]
