CUSHING and Bordley,1 in 1908, observed a patient with high diastolic blood pressure, elevated cerebrospinal fluid pressure, and bilateral papilledema, whose papilledema was relieved by subtemporal decompression. Larsson, in 1923,2 described 11 patients with hypertension, mostly secondary to renal disease, all of whom had papilledema and elevated cerebrospinal fluid pressure. Shelburne, Blain, and O'Hare3 surveyed 50 hypertensives and found that 19 of 21 with papilledema had elevated cerebrospinal fluid pressure. Pickering,4 after studying 34 hypertensives, in 1934, stated that any individual patient's cerebrospinal fluid pressure is relatively constant and that there is a close correlation between increased cerebrospinal fluid pressure and papilledema. He reaffirmed the latter view in 19525 and suggested that high diastolic blood pressure causes high intrathecal pressure and this in turn, the papilledema, which characterizes the syndrome of malignant hypertension.

This explanation of the papilledema of hypertensive disease is not universally accepted. Fishberg and Oppenheimer,6 in 1930,
