Idiopathic intracranial hypertension
Headaches, transient visual obscurations, and pulsatile tinnitus are the most frequent early manifestations of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) in adults. Untreated, it can result in optic nerve injury, visual field defects, and blindness. The manifestations of IIH in children differ from those in adults and include asymptomatic papilledema, prominent neck or back pain, diplopia, torticollis, and other focal neurologic signs.
