Department of Neurosurgery, School of Medicine, Wonkwang University, Korea.
This report describes five cases of cerebrospinal fluid(CSF) rhinorrhea which were caused by head injury in four cases and developed after surgical removal of brain tumor in one case. Intrathecally-enhanced brain computerized tomography(CT) with metrizamide, in addition to isotope cisternography, was helpful in localization of the CSF leakage site. All five cases which could not be managed conservatively were successfully repaired by surgical means using biological fibrin glue.
Key Words: CSF rhinorrhea; Intrathecally-enhanced brain CT with metrizamide; Biological fibrin glue
