    Optical Coherence Tomography for the Management of Fibrous Dysplasia of the Skull Base with Optic Nerve Involvement

    Background The skull base is the most common site of the craniofacial skeleton to be affected by fibrous dysplasia (FD). A significant proportion of such FD patients present with compression of the optic nerve, which can cause visual impairment, but most patients initially do not experience vision loss. Controversy exists regarding whether to proceed with a prophylactic surgical decompression of the optic nerve or to elect for “watchful waiting.” Optical coherence tomography (OCT), a physiologic imaging modality widely used to assess the condition of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), has been useful in the monitoring of other compressive lesions ...
