PMID:  8494134     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of a delayed but persistent cutaneous fluid leak from a puncture hole following removal of an epidural catheter is presented. The fluid was subsequently found not to be cerebrospinal but interstitial oedema fluid. This case demonstrates the importance of performing simple investigations on any such fluid before ordering more complex tests.
