Idiopathic intracranial hypertension is a secondary headache disorder characterized by headaches and visual symptoms. It most frequently occurs in obese women of childbearing age. However, many secondary causes exist, and it may affect children, men, and slim individuals. Prompt recognition, evaluation, and treatment are needed to prevent permanent visual loss.
