Abstract

Pseudotumor cerebri is a condition that produces symptoms and signs of brain tumor; the increased intracranial pressure is caused by diffuse cerebral edema. The authors describe a case of 12 years boy, with adrenal hyperplasia, treated by DOCA, presenting recurrent episodes of hyponatremia, headache, nausea and papilledema, cured definitively after correction of natremia and after institution 9-alpha-fluorohydrocortisone therapy.
