SIH is more commonly diagnosed as a cause of headaches
Spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) is typically the result of spontaneous cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) leak at the spine level. It now appears that the core pathogenic factor in SIH is decreased CSF volume rather than decreased CSF opening pressure.
