Spontaneous Intracranial Hypotension: Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, and Treatment.
Spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) is a clinical syndrome that is increasingly recognized as an important and treatable secondary cause of headaches. Insight into the condition has evolved significantly over the past decade, resulting in a greater understanding of the underlying pathophysiology, development of new diagnostic imaging tools, and a broadening array of targeted treatment options. This article reviews the clinical presentation and pathogenesis of SIH, discusses the important role of imaging in diagnosis, and describes how imaging guides treatment.
