Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension
Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension is a syndrome which is identified by elevated intracranial pressure around the brain. It’s a complicated disorder that prevails only in children and women who’re being stout and obese in the childbearing stages. An increase in the CSF would cause Optic nerve damage and swelling resulting in a condition called papilledema. The symptoms include optic atrophy leading to blindness and severe headache. As the symptoms match to brain tumour it’s also called as ‘false brain tumour’ in ophthalmology.
