INTRODUCTION: Optic gliomas are the most common tumors in the optic pathways during childhood. Among them, about 10 % are located within intra-orbital cavity. However, the optimal management for intra-orbital optic nerve gliomas remains controversial. An 11-year-old male complained about progressive decline of vision in his right eye. Brain MRI revealed a fusiform enlargement of right optic nerve within intra-orbital cavity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A presumptive diagnosis of optic nerve glioma was made. Therefore, we performed fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (FSRT) using Novalis. DISCUSSION: Five years after FSRT treatment, follow-up MRI revealed size reduction of tumor and visual acuity improvement without radiation-related complications.
