Abstract

Changes to the intracranial CSF volume in benign intracranial hypertension (BIH) are important to concepts of the disease, but evidence is controversial. Is total intracranial CSF volume increased (Davidoff 1956) or is the cerebral ventricular volume decreased (Reid et al. 1980)? Intracranial CSF volume can now be measured using an MRI method (Condon et al. 1986).
