PMID:  6777789     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 31-year-old white woman developed bilateral papilloedema whilst on lithium carbonate therapy for five years because of manic depressive illness. Oedema of the optic disc disappeared after lithium administration had been discontinued. To our knowledge this is the second case of this kind which has been reported in literature.
