What autoimmune disorders cause pseudo tumor in the cerebri?

I have developed a pseudo tumor and was told it was a result of an autoimmune disorder but was not aware I had an autoimmune disorder.

Many autoimmune diseases can result in pseudo tumor in the cerebri. Rheumathoid Arthritis is one of many autoimmune diseases which fails many of human body systems. The medication taken for RA may be a factor in intracranial pressure and poor absorption of CSF, and may result into a pseudotumor cerebri.

Unfortunately, there isn't a small list of candidates. Swelling of tissues isn't a specific symptom. There is literally a "idiopathic" designation for when doctors just don't know the proximal cause.

What you are experiencing is is increased pressure in the skull caused by a build up of cerebrospinal fluid around the brain, and it is not actually a tumor.
