Secondary intracranial hypertension (IH) is a syndrome with various etiologies, including a brain tumor, head trauma, hypoparathyroidism, hydrocephalus, meningitis, drug use, or venous obstruction. It is reasonably straightforward to diagnose secondary IH induced by these diseases. However, diagnosing secondary IH induced by unpredictable extracranial lesion is difficult, and is based largely on subtle neurological symptoms or signs and usually can be achieved by an extracranial evaluation. Here we describe four cases of secondary IH with unusual causes.
