5%); CSF leak may induce intracranial hypotension (IH), which manifests as orthostatic headaches, neck stiffness, nausea, vomiting, visual and auditory disturbances, changes in mental status, and seizures.
They cover anatomy, then imaging of vascular diseases, brain tumors, head trauma, infections, multiple sclerosis and related diseases, metabolic disorders, degenerative diseases, malformations and developmental abnormalities, hydrocephalus and intracranial hypotension, degenerative spinal and foraminal stenoses, trauma, tumors and tumor-like masses, inflammations, infections, and diseases of the peripheral nervous system, with images and information on imaging findings, epidemiology, clinical manifestations, differential diagnosis, pathology, and treatment.
Benign intracranial hypotension otherwise called as Idiopathic Intracranial Hypotension (IIH) is one of the poorly understood entity.
It is also reported in patients following systemic hypotension causing intracranial hypotension resulting spontaneous SDH (5).
Headache is the most common symptom of intracranial hypotension, and it is believed to arise as a result of the descent of the brain after a loss of CSF buoyancy.
In some patients with headache, CSF pressure may be too high, as in the case of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH, aka, pseudotumor cerebri), or too low, as in the case of intracranial hypotension.
An MRI of the brain showed signs of intracranial hypotension (Fig.
Spontaneous intracranial hypotension is a rare condition caused by spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid leak.
Intracranial hypotension is a syndrome characterized by orthostatic headache and low cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure.
Spontaneous Intracranial Hypotension is a syndrome involving reduced intracranial pressure secondary to a dural tear which occurs mostly due to connective tissue disorders such as Marfans Syndrome, and Ehler Danlos Syndrome.
We hypothesize that this may have resulted in delayed intracranial hypotension, causing primary tonic-clonic seizures and not an intra-cranial bleed.
