Thank you for posting your query.
You could be suffering from CSF rhinorrhoea
, also called as CSF leak. In this condition, the head injury
leads to a break in the skull bone, through which the cerebrospinal fluid
(fluid inside the brain cavities) can leak out.
The chance of a local nose infection is also there, but CSF leak still, must be excluded.
This condition may occur several months to years after the head injury also.
The risk of this condition is that you may develop meningitis (brain fever
infection), as the bacteria can reach the brain through the nose and the skull defect.
You should consult a Neurologist
for evaluation and diagnosis.
