PMID: 31295242.


Fifty-five year-old female presented with five weeks of progressively worsening headaches precipitated by a sudden neck movement. The headaches were exacerbated by sitting up or standing. There was associated diplopia and facial pain. Investigations were consistent with intracranial hypotension with a possible spontaneous spinal cerebrospinal fluid leak. Symptoms improved dramatically after an epidural blood patch.
