PMID: 32757392.


We present the case of 24-year-old woman who presented with chronic headaches with features of raised intracranial pressure and bilateral papilledema. Brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed the characteristic features of idiopathic intracranial hypertension. A diagnosis supported by clinical features and other ancillary tests. These features are important for physicians to recognize early, so that timely treatment may prevent permanent complications from this rare but potentially sight-threatening headache.
