Swelling with high signal intensity and contrast enhancement of the retrobulbar intra-orbital segment of the right optic nerve. The left optic nerve appears atrophied mainly at its proximal and mid-portions (diameter = 1.3 mm). No demyelinating lesion was seen at the infra- or supratentorial level.
No spinal cord lesion is seen.
The unilateral optic neuritis, the absence of a spinal cord lesion as well as the clinical presentation make neuromyelitis optica (NMO) much less likely.
