The authors describe a patient with bilateral papilledema, visual field abnormalities, poorly reactive pupils, meningeal enhancement on cranial MRI, and diffuse brain parenchymal hypervascularity. The opening pressure at the time of lumbar puncture was normal, and results of other CSF studies were normal. All abnormalities resolved with home oxygen therapy.
