Idiopathic intracranial hypertension[edit | edit source]

When the cause of increased pressure is unknown it is called Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH). It was previously known as pseudotumor cerebri as the symptoms can mimic that of a brain tumor, even though no tumor is present. It is considered to be a rare disease, affecting just 1 in 100,000.
