Not likely: cysts of the choroid fissure or plexus are a common finding and totally asymptomatic. If you have optic neuritis this is something a neurologist and ophthalmologist need to be following. It can be a symptom of possible multiple sclerosis. It can be from other causes. Did you have a MRI with and without contrast? If they are looking for MS they will do additional images - to find lesions ...Read more

7 yr old girl had CT scan after a seizure cause by fever and found a 0.6/0.7/0.7cm choroidal fissure cyst in right frontal lobe should I be concerned?
