Intracranial hypertension is a clinical syndrome of raised intracranial pressure with various etiologies. The possible pathogenic mechanisms of intracranial hypertension are excess CSF production, reduced CSF absorption and increased cerebral venous pressure. CSF glucose in intracranial hypertension is at usually normal levels and hypoglycorrhachia in intracranial hypertension has yet to be reported. We report a 23-year-old woman, who had intracranial hypertension with hypoglycorrhachia caused by a bilateral transverse sinus stenoses.
