Abstract

Primary empty sella syndrome (ESS) shares with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) high intracranial pressure (ICP) and association with obesity. Bariatric surgery is effective in IIH treatment; no data, however, exist about ESS. We report two overweight ESS patients in whom bariatric surgery resolved obesity but failed in curing ESS, requiring cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunt placement.
