PURPOSE: To report a case of neurofibromatosis type 2 with pseudopapilledema secondary to a prepapillary gliotic membrane. METHOD: Case report. Results of an ocular examination and fluorescein angiography of a patient are described. RESULTS: Fundus examination of a 14-year-old male with neurofibromatosis type 2 revealed an irregular elevation of the optic nerve and a perifoveal epiretinal membrane in the right eye. Fluorescein angiography demonstrated no autofluorescence nor leakage in the area of the optic nerve. CONCLUSION: The patient has pseudopapilledema secondary to an epiretinal membrane overlying the optic disk of the right eye. The possibility of pseudopapilledema should be considered when evaluating patients with neurofibromatosis type 2 and abnormal optic nerves. (C) 2000 by Elsevier Science Inc.
