Fibrous Dysplasia
Fibrous dysplasia, craniosynostosis, mucopolysaccharidosis and
osteopeterosis can cause optic foraminal narrowing and optic atrophy.
Sometimes, these compressions can be unilateral or asymmetrical. In the
case of craniosynostosis, intracranial pressure may be elevated and
papilledema can of itself cause optic atrophy.
