Abstract

Although optic nerve enhancement may be seen in magnetic resonance imaging of radiation-induced ischemic optic neuropathy, similar enhancement in ischemic optic neuropathy has not been previously reported in the English-language neuro-ophthalmologic literature. We report three cases of optic nerve enhancement in biopsy-proven arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy. Clinicians should consider giant cell arteritis in the differential diagnosis of an optic neuropathy with optic nerve enhancement on magnetic resonance imaging.
