Hello and welcome to HCM,
is a condition characterised by increase in intrecranial pressure but there is no mass lesion in the head.
The cause of psedotumor cerebri has to be investigated. It can be due to hydrocephalus
, increased production of CSF in the ventricles, etc.
A brain scan will help to know the cause of increased pressure.
Increased intracranial pressure is associated with symptoms of dizziness
and disturbance on standing.
hese symptoms are relieved by treating the underlying disease process.
So, investigation for the cause of pseudotumor cerebri is required to treat these symptoms.
Thanks and take care
