Abstract

Background: A 61-year-old woman complained of rapidly progressing loss of vision in the right eye. Twenty months earlier, a temporal brain tumor had been partially resected, that appeared to be a malignantly degenerated fibroblastic meningioma, for which she had received post - operative radiation therapy. Ophtalmologic evaluation revealed no retinal abnormalities and no edema of the optic disc.
