Melanocytoma of Optic Nerve
Melanocytoma of optic nerve (MON) is a rare primarily benign lesion, but due to its malignant potential—estimated around 1–2% of cases (Shields et al. 2006), possible complications and the clinical similarities with other pigmented optic nerve lesions, such as malignant melanomas, one should be able to know and recognize clinical features, hence providing adequate follow-up and assistance.
