Abstract: Postdural puncture headache (PDPH) is the most common complication of accidental or deliberate dural puncture. It also occurs after epidural or spinal analgesia for labor and delivery. Treatment may be conservative with analgesics and/or caffeine. Definitive treatment can be accomplished with an epidural blood patch (EBP). We present a case of postpartum convulsions which were temporally related to a caffeine infusion and an EBP.
