Treatment and prognosis Treatment options include CSF letting, acetazolamide and lumboperitoneal shunts. In patients with progressive visual deterioration, optic nerve fenestration may be required to preserve vision. Venous sinus stenting has been reported in case series 4,10 and also being trialled 13, The treatment is controversial as to whether apparent venous sinus stenosis is the cause or the effect of IIH 11, Spontaneous resolution of apparent stenosis is recognized 6.

History and etymology Idiopathic intracranial hypertension was first reported in by Heinrich Quincke, and terms "meningitis serosa". The term "pseudotumor cerebri" was later introduced in , and later still "benign intracranial hypertension" in not to be confused with benign intracranial hypotension Differential diagnosis Other causes of intracranial hypertension and papilledema should be sought.

Causes of venous obstruction e. It has even been suggested that some cases of symptomatic intracranial hypertension are secondary to a Chiari I malformation Importantly, however, every attempt should be made to distinguish between the two entities as treatment is different and symptom relief for patients with idiopathic intracranial hypotension with posterior fossa decompression is insignificant Idiopathic intracranial hypertension pseudotumor cerebri : MR imaging.
