A 59-year-old man presented with orthostatic headaches, memory complaints, pronounced choreiform movements, and related hyperkinetic dysarthria and titubations. Head MRI findings were suggestive of CSF leak. CSF pressure was low. CT myelography documented CSF leak at the cervicothoracic junction. Targeted epidural blood patch led to resolution of symptoms, including complete disappearance of choreiform movements.
