Idiopathic intracranial hypertension is a cause of vision loss in HIV-positive patients. In many patients with controlled HIV disease, idiopathic intracranial hypertension develops without any other apparent cause. We report the case of an HIV - infected man in whom idiopathic intracranial hypertension developed, and despite therapy with repeated lumbar puncture, acetazolamide, and neurosurgical interven-Hons, he did not regain his vision.
