Current Perspectives on Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension without Papilloedema.

Life (Basel) 2021 May 24;11(6). Epub 2021 May 24.

Metabolic Neurology, Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston B15 2TT, UK.

The pseudotumor cerebri syndrome embraces disorders characterised by raised intracranial pressure, where the commonest symptom is headache (90%). Idiopathic intracranial hypertension without papilloedema (IIHWOP) is increasingly recognised as a source of refractory headache symptoms and resultant neurological disability. Although the majority of patients with IIHWOP are phenotypically similar to those with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), it remains uncertain as to whether IIHWOP is nosologically distinct from IIH.
