PostSubject: Unique Case of Post-Lumbar Puncture Headache    Wed Feb 06, 2013 7:27 pm

Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC, USA.
Abstract

Lumbar puncture (LP) is associated with complications that include post-LP orthostatic headache, local bleeding, and subdural hematoma. We report a unique case of a spontaneous frontal epidural hematoma following a therapeutic lumbar puncture in a patient with a history of idiopathic intracranial hypertension. This case highlights the importance of symptomatology in patients following LPs by revealing a rare intracranial presentation that would be devastating if not discovered promptly and appropriately managed.
