Optic nerve swelling suggests an inflammatory response. The optic nerve sheath has distended, giving a swollen optic nerve picture. This could be an acute response to demyelinating pathology as seen in multiple sclerosis. Swelling is seen in the initial phases of optic neuritis.
The lesion in the brain is probably in the periventricular white matter. It is not clear from the description if the lesion is an infarct, or suggestive of demyelination. The lesion may well be in the visual pathway. The pathway extends from the retina all the way up to the visual cortex in the occipital lobe.
If her blurring of vision is of a recent onset, it is a good idea to investigate further for demyelination.
Is there a family history of multiple sclerosis? She is young and it is very rare to see a 9 years old diagnosed with MS. Her age is on her side. Please let me know what happens at the pediatric neurologist's office.
