Isolated optic nerve glioma is a rare tumor with no consensus for the best therapeutic approach. Therefore, tumor control and preservation of visual function remain a challenge.
Isolated optic nerve glioma is a rare tumor with no consensus for the best therapeutic approach. Therefore, tumor control and preservation of visual function remain a challenge. In this retrospective study, we describe our experience over 30 years in a single-institutional cohort of children with isolated optic nerve glioma, focusing on treatments and visual outcomes. Seventeen children were followed for a median period of 8 years (range, 2-22 years). Diagnosis was based on typical neuroradiologic findings, and 3 patients had histologic confirmation of their tumors. In our study, conservative management preserved the vision of most patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). NF1-related optic nerve gliomas were less often treated but were associated with a lower probability of progression and with occasional spontaneous regression. Sporadic tumors more frequently exhibited aggressive clinical behavior with a higher propensity for posterior extension, often requiring surgical intervention.

Afraid you have Lyme disease? Does your doctor not believe you? Are you looking for answers but confused about why different doctors say such different things? What do you know about the Lyme Wars? Did you know there was a medical war that forces doctors to take sides? Are you sure that one side is right and the other side is crazy? Would it shock you to realize that both sides are right? In this short, readable book, Dr. Maloney lays out both sides of the Lyme Wars. He has friends on both sides of the medical battle, and is tired of both sides giving only part of the whole picture to patients. If you are newly diagnosed with Lyme, or if you've been diagnosed in the past, you deserve the whole truth. And it isn't just one-sided. Compiling what we truly know about Lyme, rather than what one side claims and the other disputes, fills only a short book. But interested readers can follow up with more than a hundred citations to medical journal articles, as well as the thousand or more online articles. Or they can just read the summary in the book.

My Life with NF I believe in my own power to change. —Louise Hay I wrote this book about my experience with neurofibromatosis, commonly known as NF, because I wanted to give adults and children affected with this disorder the hope that one can live a happy, fulfilling life despite NF.
