Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), also known as pseudotumor cerebri is a condition of elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) without laboratory pathology or intracranial structural abnormalities in radiological imaging techniques. Here in, we report a 21 years old patient presented with sudden bilateral vision loss and was treated with vetriculo-peritoneal (VPS) surgery and cured with full recovery. Management of IIH ranges from conservative medical treatment to surgical intervention. Saving the vision and reducing the symptoms are the main goals of the treatment. Severeness of the symptoms and visual impairment are considered when planning the time and type of the treatment. Considering the severeness of the symptoms, early intervention is critical to prevent permanent function loss of visual system.
