Optic pathway gliomas, which occur in 15-20% of paediatric patients with neurofibromatosis type 1, are the most common central nervous system tumour associated with this neurocutaneous disorder. The detection of optic pathway gliomas is essential for further management but is often delayed in infancy due to oligosymptomatic progression and difficulties in clinical detection. Therefore, the aim of our study was to find a clinical indicator for the presence of optic pathway gliomas in children with neurofibromatosis type 1 in order to facilitate early diagnosis and initiate further ophthalmological and neuroimaging investigations.
