Idiopathic intracranial hypertension in men

NEUROLOGY 2009;72:304-309
66 men out of 721 consecutive patients were studied.  The takeaways are that men
1.  Men were less likely to have HA (55 v. 75 %) but more likely to have visual disturbance.  Acuity and fields were worse and men had about twice the risk of having permanent visual sequelae.
2.  Men were more likely to have sleep apnea (24 v. 4%)
3.  Tinnitus was less common in men (20 v. 38 %)
