Background: Intracranial hypotension (IH) is typically characterized by an orthostatic headache. There have been limited case reports describing iatrogenic IH presenting with seizures. Methods: Case report. Results: A 71-year-old woman with chronic back pain developed convulsive status epilepticus (SE), characterized by generalized clonic seizures, immediately following scoliosis surgery. She had no history of seizures or seizure risk factors. Despite treatment with Midazolam, Phenytoin and Lacosamide, seizures recurred five times over three hours. Thus, Propofol and Midazolam infusions were initiated. An electroencephalogram revealed burst suppression and bilateral hemispheric epileptiform discharges. MRI brain was consistent with IH without cortical vein thrombosis. Fluid from the surgical drains was positive for Beta-2 transferrin, indicating cerebral spinal fluid. Her intracranial hypotension was likely due to an -intraoperative dural tear causing SE. Over two weeks, she remained on bedrest, sedation was weaned, and Phenytoin and Lacosamide were tapered and discontinued. She had no further seizures. Conclusions: IH is an under recognized cause of seizure following spinal or cranial surgery, lumbar puncture, or spinal anaesthesia. Proposed mechanisms include traction on cortical structures, increased cerebral blood flow and cortical irritation secondary to subdural hygromas.
