Call for an Appointment 919-684-7214

Severe headaches, especially those that occur when you're upright and that start abruptly, may signal a spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak, also known as spontaneous intracranial hypotension. 

Because spinal CSF leaks are often misdiagnosed, it's important to seek care at a center like Duke, whose neuroradiologists are experienced in at finding and repairing spinal CSF leaks. We have extensive experience treating CSF leaks, even in people who have not had success with other treatments. Our experts help people find relief from symptoms they’ve lived with for years, sometimes even decades.
