Pseudotumor cerebri, also named idiopathic intracranial hypertension, is a condition of raised intracranial pressure in the absence of a mass lesion or cerebral edema. It is rare in childhood and often associated with multiple clinical conditions. In this report, we presented a case with peudotumor cerebri associated with megaloblastic anemia due to vitamin B12 deficiency.
