Abstract

Intracranial hypotension caused by cerebral venous thrombosis has rarely been reported. We report a patient with cerebral venous thrombosis with intracerebral hemorrhage complicated by intracranial hypotension. Initial manifestations were headache, drowsy mentality, generalized tonic-clonic seizure and left-sided weakness. The pattern of headache changed and typical orthostatic headache developed after anticoagulation following endovascular thrombolysis. If an orthostatic headache develops in patient with cerebral venous thrombosis, subsequent intracranial hypotension may be considered.
