Cerebrospinal Fluid Rhinorrhea CSF Leakage Homeopathic Treatment


Cerebrospinal fluid CSF leak occurs when CSF escapes through a small tear or hole in the outermost layer of connective tissue called the dura mater that surrounds the brain and spinal cord and holds in the CSF. The tear or hole allows the CSF to leak out.

Cerebrospinal fluid bathes the brain and is contained within a lining around the brain called the dura. These intracranial structures structures within the brain cavity are also separated from the sinuses by bone. When there is a hole in the dura and bone, CSF can then leak into the sinuses and cause a CSF leak.CSF leaks can occur in the brain cranial CSF leak or at any point along the spinal column spinal CSF leak. This is noticed when there is clear drainage from the nose or into the back of the throat that may occur with straining or position changes and does not improve with medications aimed at other causes of an ‘a runny nose’. The loss of CSF causes the previously cushioned brain to sag inside the skull, which results in a headache. Loss of fluid also causes a lowering of pressure within the skull, a condition called intracranial hypotension.

If it drains out of the nose, it is usually from one side. If it drains into the throat, it has been described as salty tasting. The breaks in the bone and dura can occur from an accident involving the head, a complication from sinus or brain surgery, an expected consequence of removing a tumor within the sinuses, or from anything that can increase pressures on the CSF. The increased pressure on the CSF can ultimately erode the bone separating the brain and sinuses and break through the dura (the lining of the brain). High CSF pressures can occur spontaneously without any obvious cause. Your doctor may need to do additional studies to determine the most likely cause of your CSF leak.

Cerebrospinal fluid leaks are a rare event. Researchers estimate that they occur in about 5 in every 100,000 people. However, they also believe that this is an underestimate and that the true number of people affected remains unknown. They are mostly found in people in their 30s and 40s. CSF leaks are commonly misdiagnosed as migraines, other headache disorders or sinusitis.
