The syndrome of benign intracranial hypertension has been recognized under various titles since Quincke’s description some 75 years ago (1). The cause of the increase in intracranial pressure, and even which intracranial compartment is involved has, however, remained obscure. In a recent review of the available evidence it was argued that the rise in intracranial pressure is secondary to an increase in CSF volume as a result of impaired CSF absorption (2). The present study reports some clinical observations on CSF circulation in patients with benign intracranial hypertension and experimental attempts to determine the cause of the condition.
