In brief: Options

Treatment of pseudotumor cerebri can include serial spinal taps, medications, weight loss, treatment of medical conditions predisposing to pseudotumor, and ultimately if all else fails a shunt is placed to lower high pressure.
The primary risk is damage to the optic nerves if left untreated.
