Abstract
Idiopathic intracranial hypertension is a syndrome of increased intracranial pressure of unknown cause that most often occurs in women of childbearing age. Most patients are overweight or obese with a history of recent weight gain. Following a brief review of the symptoms and signs, we discuss the approach to assessment and monitoring of this condition. We then present a practical approach to treatment. Because patients frequently struggle with weight loss and can also have refractory headaches and coexisting psychosocial issues, we emphasize the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to the management of this common condition.
