      Optic neuritis can result from any of the above inflammatory disorders, can occur as an isolated inflammation, or may be a part of the spectrum of multiple sclerosis. Patients usually present with decreased visual acuity. The imaging findings can be quite subtle, and CT and conventional MR pulse sequences may be normal.
