The authors presented 9 cases of surgically treated CSF rhinorrhea, two of which were spontaneous and 7 were traumatic delayed. The duration of leakage was longer than 1 month in most cases and seven of the nine cases were complicated by meningitis. The leakage site was most accurately detected by metrizamide computed tomographic cisternography(MCTC) and the most frequent leakage site was the cribriform plate. Good surgical results were obtained by direct repair and/or shunt without recurrence during follow-up period from 7 months to 2 years.
Key Words: Cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea; Spontaneous; Traumatic delayed; Metrizamide computed tomographic cisternography; Surgical management; Cribriform plate
