Figure 16 (A and B): Tumors: Optic nerve glioma in an NF1 patient. Coronal STIR (A) and axial T2W (B) images of a 7-year-old male with NF1 with mild decrease in vision on the right side show thickening and hyperintense signal in right optic nerve (arrow) suggestive of glioma. Hyperintense signal is seen in bilateral globus pallidi (elbow arrows), thalami, dorsal aspect of pons, and brachium pontis (curved arrows) due to spongiform changes seen in NF1
