Pseudotumor cerebri is a complex disorder and should be addressed at a major medical centers with experts experienced in their treatment. Although they may be suspected or even diagnosed by a primary care physician or ophthalmologist, they should be referred as quickly as possible to a neuro-ophthalmologist or neurosurgical team for a thorough evaluation and a full exploration of the risks and benefits of the treatment options.
