Abstract

Abstract A case of intracranial hypotension with spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak was reported. A Tc-99m diethyltriaminepentacetic acid radionuclide cisternography (RNC) showed the accumulation of radioactivity in the area of the subarachnoid space, the poor migration of the isotope over the convexities, and the early appearance of kidney and bladder activity. To localize the site of CSF leak, RNC will be the choice, and when the time comes, RNC will work well in the location of the leak.
