The article discusses the connection among spontaneous venous pulsation (SVP), optic disc edema and intracranial pressure. It cites the case of a 57-year-old female with pseudo-tumor cerebri. It states that she passed a magnetic resonance imaging and found that she had a widened perioptic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) spaces and empty sella.
