How are CSF leaks treated, and is there a cure?
In many cases, healthcare providers recommend no direct treatments for CSF leaks. That's because time and rest are all it takes for many injury-related CSF leaks to heal on their own.
In cases where a CSF might not or definitely won’t heal on its own, there are many different treatments and methods that can help. In most cases, it's possible to repair or seal the leak, stopping it from worsening or causing symptoms.
Chronic conditions, especially connective-tissue disorders like Marfan syndrome or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, aren't curable. When this condition isn’t treatable or repairable directly or is the result of another condition, healthcare providers will try to treat your symptoms.
