Radionuclide cisternography in intracranial hypotension syndrome
A 44-year-old male patient complaining of severe headache right after twisting his body during aerobic exercises in a swimming pool underwent In-111 DTPA radionuclide cisternography. Leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was proved on the right side of T2 and T3 vertebrae. Cisternography after bed and conservative treatments demonstrated the disappearance of abnormal tracer accumulations. Radionuclide cisternography is of great value in diagnosing cerebral-spinal fluid leak and in evaluating the therapeutic effect.
