1. Bariatric surgery and its impact on pseudotumor cerebri: A case report (PubMed)

Bariatric surgery and its impact on pseudotumor cerebri: A case report Pseudotumor cerebri is a debilitating condition that causes severe headaches and progressive visual field loss. In this report, we present a patient with Class III obesity, with pseudotumor cerebri who failed medical management and attempted weight loss via diet and exercise.After undergoing bariatric surgery, the patient had significant weight loss and improvement of visual field defects.These results suggest that bariatric (...) surgery may be an effective option for patients with rapidly progressing visual loss due to pseudotumor cerebri.

3. Association Between Cycline Antibiotic and Development of Pseudotumor Cerebri Syndrome. (PubMed)

Association Between Cycline Antibiotic and Development of Pseudotumor Cerebri Syndrome. Cycline antibiotics (CA) are commonly used to treat acne, blepharitis, and dry eye syndrome (DES). Prescribers or patients may hesitate to use CAs, since they may increase the risk of pseudotumor cerebri syndrome (PTCS).To assess whether CA use is associated with an increased risk of PTCS or papilledema and whether the risk depends upon dosage or duration of CA intake.Persons diagnosed with acne, blepharitis

4. Pseudotumor Cerebri and Glymphatic Dysfunction (PubMed)

Pseudotumor Cerebri and Glymphatic Dysfunction In contrast to virtually all organ systems of the body, the central nervous system was until recently believed to be devoid of a lymphatic system. The demonstration of a complex system of paravascular channels formed by the endfeet of astroglial cells ultimately draining into the venous sinuses has radically changed this idea. The system is subsidized by the recirculation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through the brain parenchyma along paravascular

5. Pseudotumor Cerebri Following Nexplanon® Implantation (PubMed)

Pseudotumor Cerebri Following Nexplanon® Implantation There has been much discussion about the relationship between hormonal contraceptives and the development of pseudotumor cerebri (PTC). Some have claimed that progestin-containing contraceptives, such as levonorgestrel intrauterine devices, are linked to PTC. However, the relationship and mechanism of PTC following the use of progestin-containing contraceptives remain controversial. We present a case of PTC following implantation

7. Pseudotumor cerebri and lung cancer-associated jugular vein thrombosis: Role of anatomical variations of torcular herophili (PubMed)

Pseudotumor cerebri and lung cancer-associated jugular vein thrombosis: Role of anatomical variations of torcular herophili A 71-year-old male appeared at the facility complaining of disturbance of consciousness and bilateral papilledema. The laboratory test revealed anemia and coagulation abnormality. A physical examination and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain with and without gadolinium showed no abnormalities. A lumbar puncture showed a high pressure, but a normal cerebrospinal (...) after an emergency ventriculoperitoneal shunt and anticoagulation therapy. This case was diagnosed as secondary pseudotumor cerebri (PTC). In order to facilitate the early detection of secondary PTC, it is important to take note of symptoms of intracranial hypertension with no remarkable intracranial lesions and to consider the possibility of PTC, especially in the patients with high risk factors for coagulopathy including lung cancer.

Valsalva-triggered pseudotumor cerebri syndrome: Case series and pathogenetic implications. To report the clinical and radiologic features of 3 patients in whom prolonged vigorous coughing/Valsalva triggered the development of pseudotumor cerebri syndrome (PTCS) that persisted even after the coughing attacks had stopped and to discuss how this novel proximate trigger supports a "hydraulic model" of PTCS pathogenesis.This was a retrospective case series of 3 patients seen between January 2011

Headache Characteristics in Children With Pseudotumor Cerebri Syndrome, Elevated Opening Pressure Without Papilledema, and Normal Opening Pressure: A Retrospective Cohort Study. Certain headache characteristics and associated symptoms are commonly attributed to increased intracranial pressure, but they have not been systematically studied among children in the context of revised diagnostic criteria for pseudotumor cerebri syndrome (PTCS).We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients

An Estimation of the Risk of Pseudotumor Cerebri among Users of the Levonorgestrel Intrauterine Device Because of a previous association of pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) with levonorgestrel, we wished to evaluate the use of levonorgestrel-eluting intrauterine devices ("levonorgestrel intrauterine systems", LNG-IUS) in our University of Utah and Rigshospitalet PTC patients. In our retrospective series, PTC prevalence was approximately 0.18% and 0.15% in the LNG-IUS population versus 0.02% and 0.04

Optociliary Shunt Vessels: Role in Diagnosis and Treatment of Atypical Pseudotumor Cerebri A 46-year-old man presented with severe visual loss and optic atrophy associated with optociliary shunt vessels. The diagnostic work-up revealed intracranial hypertension and cerebral venous sinus stenosis, with no evidence of previous thrombosis.

Chiari I malformation with underlying pseudotumor cerebri: Poor symptom relief following posterior decompression surgery 
 Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) patients exhibit clear clinical signs and symptoms of higher intracranial pressure (ICP) without ventricular enlargement or mass lesions. The clinical picture of patients with PTC can sometimes be similar to that of Chiari Malformation type I (CMI). There is some evidence that Chiari I malformation and PTC may coexist, which raises the question

Therapeutic approaches to pediatric pseudotumor cerebri: New insights from literature data The pseudotumor cerebri syndrome (PTCS), also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), is characterized by signs and symptoms of increased intracranial pressure such as headache and cranial nerve palsies, in the absence of any space-occupying mass. This condition commonly affects overweight women of childbearing age, even if it is also frequent in men and children. Children with PTCS may

Pseudotumor Cerebri Syndrome with Resolution After Discontinuing High Vitamin A Containing Dietary Supplement: Case Report and Review A 24-year-old non-obese, but slightly overweight, female presented with a two-week history of progressive severe headache associated with two days of blurry vision. Clinical exam was significant for bilateral papilledema and an enlarged blind spot on visual field testing. Contrast enhanced MRI head revealed no space occupying lesion. A lumbar puncture revealed (...) an elevated opening pressure of 38 cm H2O with normal cerebrospinal fluid composition leading to a diagnosis of pseudotumor cerebri syndrome (PTCS). The patient lacked the typical risk factors of high body mass index or obvious antecedent medications; however, on subsequent questioning, she was chronically ingesting a high vitamin A containing weight loss dietary supplement (Thrive W® - Table 1), which we believe had caused intracranial hypertension. Discontinuation of the diet pill and treatment

Neurobrucellosis Presenting as Pseudotumor Cerebri: First Report from Oman A ten-year-old boy presented to the hospital with body ache and joint pains for two months and headache, vomiting, and skin rash for three days. He was drowsy and lethargic at admission. Physical examination revealed bilateral papilledema. There were no cranial nerve involvement, neuromotor deficit, or signs of meningeal irritation. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain did not reveal any (...) evidence of cerebral edema or space occupying lesion. In view of the high endemicity of brucellosis in the area, Brucella agglutination test (BAT) was done at the time of admission and was negative. However, on the eighth day of admission, blood culture showed growth of Brucella melitensis. A repeat BAT at this time was strongly positive with a titer of 1:1 280. The initial one was negative due to prozone phenomenon caused by very high antibody titers. A diagnosis of neurobrucellosis with pseudotumor
