Brief Answer: Please find detail answer below. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for writing back Muticystic lesions means multiple loculations within the pineal gland due to septa whereas simple pineal cyst is unilocular and there is no septa within it. Optic neuritis is not due to pineal lesion. Vertigo may be due to pineal lesion.It is important to know from report about compression to surrounding structures due to pineal lesion. You need proper evaluation by a neurosurgeon.Other causes of vertigo must be ruled out. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
