Abstract / Description of output

Computed tomography of 30 patients presenting acutely with benign intracranial hypertension was compared with that of 30 normal controls matched for age and sex. Qualitative and quantitative assessments showed smaller cranial CSF spaces in the cases of benign intracranial hypertension, suggesting that cerebral swelling is involved in the pathogenesis of benign intracranial hypertension.
