Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is a syndrome of unknown cause characterized by elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). While imaging often reveals a stenosis of the transverse sinuses, the role of this feature in IIH has been in dispute. Many patients with chronic daily headache have been found to actually be suffering from a milder form of IIH without papilledema (IIHWOP). These patients often demonstrate hypertensive B-waves and plateau-like waves upon continuous ICP monitoring… CONTINUE READING
