Lord Dimwit: mysticcat: Diogenes: mysticcat: I've seen several cases of this in my career. It's not that hard to diagnose. All of the patients had positional rhinorrhea and could reproduce it for me on the spot. It's a great party trick, too.What can cause it?Typically trauma, which can be distant and not thought of as severe. Otherwise, its classified as "spontaneous" from connective tissue defects +/- intercranial hypertension....wouldn't that be a massive infection vector for the brain? How are these people not walking around with severe encephalitis?

EnormousGreenRageMonster: Been there, done that. Fractured my skull when I was 2 and apparently leaked CSF all over my grandfather. Whoops!/CSB? Maybe cooler if I could remember it...
ladyfortuna: I always liked Robert Patrick as an addition though, which puts me in a minority.
Beeblebrox: Looks like you blew a seal.
MythDragon: Also you can check to see if someone has a possible back injury by shoving your hand down their pants. If they have a boner, then priapism (boner) is a sign of spinal injury. Of course you can just look, but the hands on way lets you be sure. Also this doesn't work for females. Also females don't like it when your shove your hand down their pants when they slip on the stairs, to check for back injuries.
Cat F Cat F: At one point I had spinal fluid leaking out my back through an incision. If you're ever wondering if you have spinal fluid coming out somewhere it's not supposed to, blow your nose/dab it and let it dry. if there's really thin red rings around your snot/mystery fluid, you've got some issues you should have checked out.
