In this case report, a 71-year-old female developed headache and nausea and signs of brain stem involvement following lumbar surgery with intraoperative dural tear.

This case highlights the importance of swift diagnostics in patients developing neurological symptoms following lumbar surgery, as well as limiting any cerebrospinal fluid leakage following intraoperative dural tear.
