Postdural puncture headache (PDPH) is a major complication of lumber puncture or accidental dural puncture especially in patients with raised intrabdominal pressure like pregnancy, abdominal tumors etc. Many interventions have been tried to prevent and treat PDPH. None of them is 100% effective and variable success rates have been reported. We present a case of successful use of epidural saline patch to treat PDPH caused by accidental dural puncture in a 45 yrs female with large ovarian tumor.
