Abstract

• Harmless dural calcification can sporadically affect the optic nerve. • Concurrent optic neuropathy should raise the suspicion of underlying pathology. • Bilateral optic nerve sheath meningiomas commonly exhibit calcification. • If a bilateral meningioma is suspected, CT better shows calcification than MRI.
