We report a rare case of atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor that presented with imaging findings similar to those of optic pathway glioma. The diagnosis of atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor was determined following surgical resection of the tumor by collective histologic and immunohistochemical staining, and cytogenetic analysis. We describe the clinical presentation, neuroimaging findings and pathology, and compare them to those of optic gliomas.
