The link between polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) has long been debated. Historically, there is a wide range of reported occurrence of both conditions, being between 15% and 64%. Both conditions share a common phenotype. The awareness that in a new large data study that there is a 1.5-fold increased prevalence of diagnosed PCOS in participants with IIH as compared to the controls is important. Assessment for the potential of co-morbid PCOS in women with IIH is important as this may enable optimisation of weight and fertility management.
