ARRUABARRENA, C.; ANCOCHEA, G.; REBOLLEDA, G.  and  MUNOZ-NEGRETE, F.J.. Intracranial hypertension and cranial sinus stenosis. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.10, pp.619-622. ISSN 0365-6691.

Clinical case: Craneal sinuses stenosis can appear in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Neuroimaging techniques revealed a right transverse sinus stenosis. As the pressure gradient between both sides of the stenosis was small and response to conservative treatment good, angioplasty was not indicated. Discussion: Lateral sinus stenosis in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension is prevalent. It is not clear whether these stenoses are the origin of, or secondary to, cerebrospinal fluid pressure increases. Some cases refractory to conservative treatment may respond to angioplasty with stent placement.

Keywords : Idiopathic intracranial hypertension; intracraneal sinus stenosis; pseudotumor cerebri.
