Abstract

The treatment of optic nerve sheath meningiomas (ONSM) is controversial. Radiation therapy has been used with some success in patients with progressive visual loss. We report a case of visual improvement in a patient with an optic nerve sheath meningioma and progressive visual field loss, treated with conformal radiotherapy.
