Title Can Lumbar Puncture Be Safely Deferred in Patients With Mild Presumed Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension?
Creator Amir Vosoughi, Edward Margolin, Jonathan Micieli
Subject High Intracranial Pressure/Headache
Description Lumbar puncture (LP) is performed to exclude secondary causes in patients suspected of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). However, LPs may be difficult to obtain, are subject to technical issues and may have complications. The goal of this study was to determine whether LP could be safely deferred in patients with mild vision loss and papilledema from presumed IIH.
