Abstract

Intrapapillary refractile bodies were observed in seven of 13 patients with chronic optic disc edema secondary to optic nerve sheath meningioma. The observation of refractile bodies preceded or coincided with decline in vision and disappeared as optic atrophy supervened. Intrapapillary refractile bodies appear to be a nonspecific sign of chronic optic disc edema.
