Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query. The color of the draining fluid could be an issue.
Your presentation could either be an abscess
(infection) which is draining the pus accumulated within, or a possible CSF leak (which is extremely serious). The CSF is in normal a clear fluid, but is seen yellowish in color (also called xanthochromia
) in conditions like reb blood cell lysis, a subarachnoid hemorrhage
) or increase in protein.
Please visit a doctor at the earliest to get yourself examined, and also to send the draining fluid to the laboratory to rule out the worst. Please do this at the earliest.
I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.
