Abstract

Intranasal foreign bodies are common and can penetrate the skull base. Transnasal endoscopic management of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks has become the treatment of choice for most anterior cranial CSF leaks. We present the endoscopic management of a transnasal penetrating injury of the anterior skull base. This has not previously been described in the literature.
