This axial (cross section) T2 weighted MRI of a 15 year old with known NF1 demonstrates pathologic thickening of the optic nerves within both orbits compatible with optic pathway gliomas. These are common tumours seen in NF1. Also seen are foci of abnormal increased T2 signal within the brainstem and cerebellum which are common findings with NF1.
