Optic neuritis and optic glioma are diseases that affect the optic nerve and cause visual disturbances. Although they can have different clinical presentations, they can also mimic each other. Optic glioma is a slow-growing tumor that causes gradual vision loss, whereas optic neuritis is an acute inflammatory disease that causes sudden onset vision loss and pain with eye movements. Due to the limitations of magnetic resonance imaging, distinguishing between the two conditions is not always possible. Herein, we have reported the case of a patient who was diagnosed with optic neuritis after extensive investigations and who recovered completely with medical treatment.
