We report three patients with spontaneous intracranial hypotension in whom spinal MR imaging revealed ventral extradural fluid collections that were centered at the cervicothoracic junction in two patients and extended throughout the entire spine in the third patient. These spinal fluid collections most likely resulted from the accumulation of CSF at the site of dural leakage. Knowledge of this association can be helpful in the selection of imaging studies to facilitate diagnosis and treatment.
