Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Spontaneous intracranial hypotension is an uncommon but increasingly recognized condition characterized by an orthostatic headache secondary to low cerebrospinal fluid pressure. Vestibulocochlear symptoms are common but rarely the only presenting feature and can be challenging to differentiate from Meniere’s disease. We present a case series that highlights the common vestibulocochlear symptoms and a review of the literature to increase awareness amongst otolaryngologists and highlight the path to diagnosis and management of this condition.
