Gökhan Gözün, Ömer Jaradat and Bülent AtaÅŸ

Both vesicoureteral reflux and recurrent upper urinary tract infections can cause Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and hypertension. Systemic hypertension can develop neurologic symptoms in patients by causing intracranial hypertension, but Pseudotumor Cerebri (PTC) is rare with CKD. Herein, we present an 11 years old girl with neurologic symptoms. CKD, hypertension, and PTC were detected. Through the administered treatment, neurologic symptoms were regressed and blood pressure was controlled.
