?CSF Leak: While very unlikely and many things are more common, dripping from your nose and throat (in the setting of a significant head trauma) can be the result of a leak of cerebrospinal fluid. If the fluid is clear, profuse, or salty tasting in the back of your throat it may be worthwhile to see your primary care doctor. Persistent cerebrospinal fluid leak can result in a serious CNS infection.
