PMID: 32976194.


Postlumbar puncture headache (PLPH) is a common adverse event after lumbar puncture. The specific cause for headache remains uncertain but is assumed to be cerebrospinal fluid leakage. The headache affects the patient, family, and workplace as well as society in general. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors associated with the development of PLPH.
