Özet

Spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) is a rare and potentially serious condition in childhood. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) volume depletion is thought to be the main causative feature for intracranial hypotension and results from a spontaneous CSF leak, often at the spine level. SIH is increasingly diagnosed in clinical practice, although it manifests a varied symptomatology. The downward displacement of the brain, sometimes mimicking a Chiari I malformation, has rarely been reported. We present a case of a SIH with Chiari I malformation accompanied by an unusual clinical presentation of persistent hypoglycemia.
