Background and objectives: The diagnostic criteria for post-dural puncture headache (PDPH) of the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-II, 2004) state that postural headache appears not later than the fifth day after the puncture and disappears spontaneously within a week, or within 48 hours after treatment with an epidural blood patch. The criteria also necessarily include at least one of the following symptoms: neck stiffness, tinnitus, hearing loss, photophobia, and nausea. In this study, we evaluatedthe clinical features of PDPH and the validity of diagnostic criteria (ICHD-II, 2004).
