Description IIH in Pediatric population is associated with very different etiologies. Hypervitaminosis A due to excessive ingest has been cited as one of them. We present a girl 5 years old who daily and "for a long time" took 2 multivitamin complex that included low dosis of Vitamine A - because her mother thought it was good for her with no medical prescription - and every day a moisturizing cream with 600.000 IU Vit A. She developped a typical IHH with cephalea, diplopía and typical findings in MRI.
