Intracranial Hypertension Fast Facts
Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is a condition characterized by an increase of pressure in the fluid surrounding the brain.
IIH is also sometimes called pseudotumor cerebri because its symptoms can mimic those of a brain tumor.
IIH is most prevalent in obese women of childbearing age.
One study found that the incidence of IIH in the United States doubled between 1990 and 2014. This increase paralleled the increase in obesity rates during the same period.
