Brief Answer:
Fracture nasal trauma

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
It is possible that sometimes the fracture which can be diagnosed clinically is not seen in x-ray. The best way to confirm is to get a CT scan paranasal sinuses done. The fractured segments can be easily seen on CT PICTURES as it is more defined.
The management will depend on the bones involved. If septum is fractured but not displaced, it can be reduced without a septoplasty.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Avoid any further trauma.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks and regards
