Cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea following rhinoplasty.
Cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea, whatever the etiology, is a serious and life-threatening problem. We present a case following rhinoplasty. To our knowledge, this specific complication has not been reported, most likely because it has gone unrecognized, since most cerebrospinal fluid leaks cease spontaneously. Surgeons performing rhinoplasty should be aware of this potential complication, how to confirm the diagnosis, and methods for its treatment.
