Author information

  • 1Department of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Aga Khan University, Pakistan.


Spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) is a well-defined clinical entity that is frequently misdiagnosed. We are reporting a case of 38 years old male who presented with severe headache and an episode of generalized tonic-clonic seizure. He was managed successfully with an epidural blood patch. Understanding of the characteristics, symptomatology, evaluation, treatment options, and prognosis is discussed.
