Permanent visual loss is a well established major sequela of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). It is often insidious and frequently unnoticed by patients with IIH. It is vital to monitor these patients with serial perimetric and visual acuity tests because visual loss can be halted and occasionally reversed if treatment is begun early. We report a case of IIH with an empty sella turcica and polycystic ovary syndrome who developed visual field loss over ten years. This report illustrates the importance of close ophthalmic monitoring and detailed neurological and endocrinological evaluation to prevent complications in such patients.
