Abstract

Orthostatic headache is the leading clinical manifestation of CSF leakage. Anatomic changes due to low CSF pressure can be detected by cranial and spinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We report improved spinal MRI findings in a pediatric case of post-dural puncture headache treated by epidural blood patch administration.
