Abstract

Cerebrospinal fluid fistula caused by head trauma is a potentially dangerous problem and precise localization and radical treatment are necessary. We present a case of a patient with Panfacial fracture caused by a motorcycle accident, resulting in a cerebrospinal fluid leakage. The correct diagnosis was realized by computed tomography and auxiliary tests. The successful treatment can be confirmed with the support of radionuclide cisternography examination.
