Optic nerve glioma
Optic nerve glioma is a tumor that affects any part of the optic nerve and gradually depressing the ability to see. It usually occurs at a young, even childhood, age, which makes it difficult to timely seek help from specialists. Diagnosis becomes necessary when somatic complaints are present. Most often at the initial stage, this is a decrease in visual acuity, the appearance of spots or “flies” in front of the eyes. Focusing difficulties are possible.
Dislocation of some gliomas can contribute to their transition to the area of chiasm - the optic nerve chiasm. Chiasm with glioma is a dangerous condition of the nervous system, which is fraught with complete loss of vision.
In addition to functional disorders, over time, glioma, growing, can cause exophthalmos - bulging of the eyeball out of the sockets.
Often, glioma of the visual pathway can be a consequence of the peculiarities of the evolution of the eye in the embryonic period. At this time, pathological mechanisms of development can be laid down and provoke neurofibromatosis of the visual pathways. Optic nerve glioma is a common complication of neurofibromatosis. In the future, it can also be displayed in the defeat of the endocrine-metabolic sphere, the bone system.
Treatment of optic nerve glioma
Glioma is a benign lesion, and the patient usually has sufficient time to determine a treatment strategy, adjusted for the extent of the lesion. Experts offer 2 ways: surgery and conservative treatment.
In the case of early diagnosis, MRI monitoring of glioma growth will be the determining factor. If the growth rate causes concern, the tumor seeks to penetrate into the chiasm and intracranial space, then a decision is made on surgical intervention.
Therapeutic treatment of optic nerve glioma is performed with the help of its radiation and the effects of chemotherapy. Each case is considered at a medical council and requires an individual treatment regimen.
