Hello! My sister has been diagnosed with pseudotumor ceribri. She is obese and it is said that this disorder happens to obese females. Is there anybody who could tell me more about pseudotumor ceribri? Thank you very much!

Hello! The simplest explanation would be that there is too much cerebrospinal fluid in one’s head, and there's no place for this fluid to go. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is the liquid that protects the brain and spinal cord from injury. Since your skull is an enclosed unit, the increased pressure from your excess CSF puts pressure on your brain. Then a person gets a pressure headache. Pseudotumor cerebri is a relatively rare and individualized disease. Each person can act differently regarding symptoms, treatment, and side effects. One can never know how the condition will appear, how long it will last, whether
it will come back, or the degree it will impact your life.
There are people who have success with medication or treatment, and their PTC goes away. There are others who become disabled with this condition, and treatment or surgery is ineffective.
