Abstract:   (1272 Views)
Background: Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) is an autoimmune astrocytopathic disease affecting central nervous system (CNS). CSF pressure in these patients is usually normal.
Case Presentation: A 30-year-old woman was admitted with complaints of headache and lower limbs paresis. Lumbar puncture (LP) and magnetic resonance imaging were performed for the patient. Opening pressure was 42 cm H2O in the first LP. According to the clinical evidences, imaging, and the patient's positive aquaporin-4 antibody, the diagnosis of NMOSD was established.
Conclusion: High intracranial pressure headache; however rare, may be the first sign of the onset of the acute exacerbation phase of NMOSD.

Keywords: NMOSD, High ICP, Anti- aquaporin antibody
