Pseudotumor Cerebri: Report of a Familial Occurrence

Arch Neurol. 1974;30(1):110-111. doi:10.1001/archneur.1974.00490310112021

A mother and son each developed pseudotumor cerebri, five years apart, at age 38 and 12 years, respectively. The course was self-limited in each patient, and the only likely predisposing factor common to both was obesity. The present cases represent, to our knowledge, the first reported occurrence of pseudotumor cerebri in successive generations.
