Abstract

We present a case of an optochiasmatic cavernous hemangioma (OCH) treated by stereotactic radiotherapy that required subsequent surgical resection. Subtotal resection and/or radiotherapy are not curative and can lead to hemorrhage and progressive neuronal insult. We recommend complete surgical resection as the treatment of choice.
