Patients with cystinosis have risk factors known to be associated with secondary increased intracranial pressure. The authors report a series of patients with cystinosis and describe their experience in the diagnosis and management of increased intracranial pressure in this population. The ophthalmologist should be aware of this vision-threatening association.
