Vasopressin (AVP) in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) has been implicated in the control of intracranial pressure (ICP). Evidence suggests that central AVP has a separate origin and exerts different effects than AVP in the peripheral circulation. Increased concentrations are present in the CSF of patients with a variety of neurological disorders associated with elevated ICP [2, 6] and a positive relationship exists between ICP and AVP levels in the CSF .
