    Advertisements



    You have a 28 year old lady that comes to the ER, because she says that she has a headache for the las three weeks, the headache is intermittent and is 6/10, she also state that she feels nauseated and have vomit 3 times already, her vitals are normal, no fever, neurological exam is normal. She is 5'3 and weights 190 pounds. The intern tells you he wants to practice the fundospic exam and you tell him, go for it, after he checks he tells you Doc I do not know what it is but it doesn't look normal. When you check you find papiledema.
    What is the Dx?
    A- Stroke
    B- malinger
    C- HIV
    D- Pseudo tumor cerebri
