Abstract

The understanding of raised intracranial pressure (ICP) is increasing with the directed use of intracranial telemetric ICP monitors. This case uniquely observed ICP changes by telemetric monitoring in a patient with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), who developed rapid sight-threatening disease. A lumbar drain was inserted, as a temporising measure, and was clamped prior to surgery. This resulted in a rapid rise in ICP, which normalised after insertion of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. This case highlighted the utility of the ICP monitor and the lumbar drain as a temporising measure to control ICP prior to a definitive procedure as recommended by the IIH consensus guidelines.
