Abstract

The case of a patient who manifested signs and symptoms of previously unsuspected intracranial mass lesions after initiation of nifedipine therapy for control of reflex sympathetic dystrophy is presented. We speculate that the cerebral vasodilatory effects of nifedipine led to increased intracranial pressure.
