Abstract

Introduction: Spontaneous/primary intracranial hypotension is characterised by orthostatic headache and is associated with characteristic magnetic resonance imaging findings. Case report: We present a case report of a patient with typical symptoms and classical radiological images. Discussion: Spontaneous intracranial hypotension is an under-recognised cause of headache and can be diagnosed by history of typical orthostatic headache and findings on MRI brain.
