Cerebrospinal fluid ( CSF) is present in the brain which is protected by the skull bones. Occasionally, due to bone thinning, infection, birth defects or trauma the bony protection is lost and the fluid leaks through the nose ( since the nose is just below the brain). This causes watery fluid to flow from the nose. This may at times result into threatening meningitis. This condition is corrected by surgery. Traditionally, this surgery was performed by opening the skull and repairing it causing significant post operative complications. Now, the same surgery can be performed by a minimal approach through the sinus ( sinus surgery).
