Rachabattuni Siva Tejaswini [2] | Ganivada Sirisha [2] | Syamala Gowri Sandhya

Abstract: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension also known as pseudotumor cerebri or benign intracranial hypertension is a condition characterised by raised intracranial pressure without detectable cause, raised icp without change in composition of CSF and associated with symptoms like headache, blurring of vision and tinnitus. Etiology is unclear, but it is mostly associated with obesity, prolonged corticosteroid therapy or rapid corticosteroid withdrawal, galactosemia, hypervitaminosis A and severe vitamin A deficiency. If not treated promptly, it may cause visual loss due to optic atrophy.
