Abstract
Orthostatic headache after suboccipital craniectomy has been rarely reported. A 32-year-old man underwent emergent suboccipital craniectomy due to acute bilateral cerebellar infarctions with massive brain edema. Although his neurological deterioration halted after the craniectomy, he still suffered from a severe disabling orthostatic headache. We performed two epidural blood patches at the levels of the lumbar & thoracic spine. He improved considerably a few days after the repetitive epidural blood patches. Epidural blood patches may be a useful treatment modality for post-craniectomy postural headaches.KeyWords:Orthostatic headache, Craniectomy, Epidural blood patch
