Papilledema and Communicating Hydrocephalus: Association With a Lumbar Neurofibroma

Arch Neurol. 1974;30(6):487-489. doi:10.1001/archneur.1974.00490360063013

Communicating hydrocephalus documented by both radionuclide cisternography and CSF infusion manometric testing on several occasions has persisted since removal of the tumor, without evidence of deterioration of mental function.
