1. If you have confirmed CSF rhinorrhea, the treatment remains the same, irrespective of the cause.

2. If you consider barotrauma as the cause, proven cases are rare. You might be one of the first cases in the world with sinus barotrauma leading to CSF leak. This might have happened because you are predisposed by some underlying connective tissue disorder, congenital defect / anomaly or benign intra cranial hypertension.

3. A proven route of CSF leak is barotrauma causing a perilymph leak in the ear, draining to the nose via the Eustachian tube. This is also known as CSF Otorhinorrhea. However, this should usually be accompanied by ear symptoms or dizziness. Sometimes there are no ear complaints. You may include an HRCT Temporal Bones along with the CT cistrrnography.
