Orthostatic headaches following dural puncture are well known to anaesthetists as well as other physicians who perform lumbar punctures. However, due to the progression of medical knowledge and newer diagnostic capabilities, many other causes of low pressure headaches have been recognised. Even though low pressure headache is largely underdiagnosed at present, with increased awareness it may become a common finding in the future. This article includes symptoms, diagnostic problems, and treatment options available for patients with low CSF pressure headache including post dural puncture headaches.
