Question: What is The Difference between benign and Malignant Intra-Cranial Hypertension? I was diagnosed not long ago with Benign Intra Cranial hypertension and I have heard there is another condition called malignant intra cranial hypertension. I just wanted to know if anyone knows the difference between them

Answer: Benign and malignant hypertension is a difference of magnitude. Malignant hypertension is much higher, and often more sudden. The effects on the circulatory system are different, as you could guess. Benign hypertension acts over a long time, but malignant hypertension can cause dramatic changes in the blood vessels, including a thickening that can eventually damage the organs they supply.
