Idiopathic intracranial hypertension is a syndrome characterized by an increase in intracranial pressure, without hydrocephaly or a mass
lesion. It is most commonly encountered in obese adolescent girls, young women, and pregnant women. Its prevalence rate in all 3
groups is the same. Herein we present a pregnancy case with idiopathic intracranial hypertension and an evaluation of the effects of
idiopathic intracranial hypertension during any trimester and the effects of its treatment on pregnancy, as well as the correlation bet-
ween idiopathic intracranial hypertension and pregnancy. Moreover, treatment options are assessed in light of the literature.

Keywords: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension, pregnancy, therapy.
