2,454 Possible Causes for Low Intracranial Pressure

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Signs of increased intracranial pressure (eg, papilledema, altered mental status, neurologic findings) may suggest intracranial involvement.[emedicine.medscape.com] Mastoiditis and other intracranial complications of URIs should be evaluated by CT or magnetic resonance imaging.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Blood pressure may be elevated, and edema may occur.[emedicine.medscape.com]
