Often no consequence: Most often there are no consequences. However, this can lead to leakage of spinal fluid from the nose or ear and this can create problems such as meningitis or persistent leakage of spinal fluid. More rarely, there can be impairment of hearing or even deafness, or paralysis on one side of the face.
