Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is typically described in a middle-aged female and present with symptoms of headache, transient visual obscuration, photophobia, diplopia, rarely with pulsatile tinnitus. Seizure as a sole manifestation is very rare. Here we present a case of a young non-obese female with epilepsy, and imaging revealed temporal lobe encephalocele with typical imaging features of IIH. She underwent further workup, which confirmed the diagnosis of idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
