Pseudotumor cerebri is a disorder of unknown etiology. An unknown condition characterized with increased intracranial pressure. The primary problem is chronically elevated intracranial pressure, and the most important neurological manifestations are papilledema, which may lead to progressive optic atrophy and blindness and diplopia. We present a patient who developed pseudotumor cerebri without increased intracranial pressure. To our knowledge, this is the second report describing pseudotumor cerebri in a case without increased intracranial pressure.

Keywords: Pseudotumor cerebri, normal intracranial pressure
