Cerebrospinal Fluid Leaks: An Overview

Standard

We are delighted to announce the publication of Cerebrospinal Fluid Leaks: An Overview, the latest edition to our popular factsheet series. It is free to download from our website.

This new leaflet provides a valuable overview of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) csf-leak-association-factsheet-series-advert-csf-leaks-an-overviewleaks, both cranial and spinal, and touches upon key signs and symptoms, diagnostic techniques and treatment options.

It has been produced in consultation with two UK neurologists working in the NHS: Dr Simon Ellis, a consultant neurologist at Royal Stoke University Hospital, and Dr Manjit Matharu, a consultant neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

Cerebrospinal Fluid Leaks: An Overview is a must-read for both diagnosed sufferers and those who suspect that they may be suffering from a CSF leak. It is ideal for inclusion in leaflet displays or handing out as part of an awareness-raising event.

The leaflet also provides useful information for GPs, doctors working in emergency medicine, paramedics and other healthcare professionals who may not routinely encounter CSF leaks in their work, but nonetheless need to know what to look out for and how to treat them.
