Karnataka PGET ENT MCQ Answer 2

The Correct Answer is B

Leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) though the ear structures is a rare but potentially life-threatening situation that requires rapid intervention.

The most common cause of CSF otorrhea is fractures of the temporal bone. Blunt trauma to the skull may produce fractures in the temporal bone with tearing of dura and foramina causing acute leakage. Fractures may also produce defects in the bony tegmen plate, predisposing one to encephaloceles or meningoceles with resultant delayed CSF leakage.
