Objective: Spontaneous spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks are rare and challenging to diagnose and treat. Patients may present to a variety of physicians, and many patients are often referred to a specialized center with a dedicated spinal CSF leak program and expertise in this condition. To our knowledge, there are no reported publications on how to create such a program.
Conclusion: In this article, we describe the specific steps we took to develop a spinal CSF leak program, which we have implemented over a multihospital network.
