– Re: Benign ICT due to respiratory condition?

As u know no one knows the exact cause for IIH. Your patient seems to have had many predisposing factors such as hormonal factors in a woman during her menopause, anemia and vitamin deficiencies due to her chronic renal problem, history of renal transplant with long term antibiotics and subsequent steroids which might have been stopped. The same causes can ppt a chest problem as well.
Chest conditions have a role in increasing further increase in ICT in those with increased ICT. I do not think her raised ICT was primarily due to her chest problem. Unfortunately, I could not access your full article.
I hope this comment is of help to you.
Your problem is interesting.
