A 22-year-old woman had a unique association of neurologic abnormalities and pernicious anemia. These neurological abnormalities consisted of headache, nausea, vomiting, and increased intracranial pressure associated with papilledema with diffuse and focal electroencephalographic changes. All of these signs and symptoms disappeared with vitamin B12 therapy. Early recognition of the pernicious anemia circumvented serious complications and prevented the performance of unnecessary and potentially hazardous diagnostic procedures.
