PURPOSE: To demonstrate that slow-growing intracranial suprasellar mass lesions can be associated with optic disc cupping, clinically indistinguishable from glaucomatous optic neuropathy.

CASES: At a neuro-ophthalmology tertiary clinic, a retrospective chart review identified four patients of presumed
normal tension glaucoma and supra-sellar tumors. In all four patients with normal intraocular pressure, the appearance of the optic disc resembled typical glaucomatous optic nerve damage with disc cupping and parapapillary atrophy.

CONCLUSION: In few patients, typical glaucomatous abnormalities of the optic nerve head may occur in association with slow-growing suprasellar tumors.
