IIH mechanisms clarified
October 03, 2012
To clarify whether total intracranial CSF volume increases in IIH, researchers prospectively studied MRI-derived measures of total cranial, ventricular, and extraventricular CSF volumes in patients with IIH and controls. Results showed that the extraventricular CSF space was significantly greater in the patient group versus the controls. The ventricular volume was the same between the two groups.
