Abstract
Fulminant idiopathic intracranial hypertension is a rare presentation of idiopathic intracranial hypertension in which visual decline occurs within 4weeks of initial symptom presentation. Idiopathic intracranial hypertension usually presents with headaches, visual disturbances, and in women who are overweight. We present a case of idiopathic intracranial hypertension in which a female patient presented with rapid, severe vision loss within 8days of symptom presentation and no other idiopathic intracranial hypertension symptoms. This case highlights a rare presentation of Fulminant idiopathic intracranial hypertension and the need for a quick diagnosis and treatment to preserve vision.
