Abstract

In a retrospective fashion we reviewed the clinical aspects and the neuroradiological findings in 23 young patients (mean age at the onset 9.2 year-old) affected by Pseudotumor Cerebri, examinated at our Institution in the last ten years. The syndrome is characterized by high CSF pressure value without hydrocephalus, expansive lesions or biochemical modifications of the liquor. The aim of this study is to evaluate the importance of the neuroradiological examinations in the diagnosis of Pseudotumor Cerebri.
