Özet

We present a 29-year-old woman admitted with severe postural headache after spontaneous term labor. Lactation ceased for the duration of headache. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed dural thickening that is suggestive of spontaneous intracranial hypotension. CT-cisternography disclosed cervicodorsal dural leak. She was treated with a high-volume epidural blood patch (EBP) and her symptoms were relieved. Lactation returned to normal after EBP. She had normal findings on follow-up MRI examination at 6 months.
