Brain Fluid From Nose
No: If a person has had a brain abscess and the underlying cause isn't clear (iv drug abuse, heart infection, cystic fibrosis, tetralogy, etc.), look for osler-weber-rendu and for an atrial septal defect. These two allow systemic venous blood to bypass the lungs where bacteria-laden microparticles are often removed. ...Read more

How do you differentiate mucus from the lungs and mucus coming from deviated septum/post nasal drip?
Hydrocephalus: Hydrocephalus is the buildup of fluid in the cavities (ventricles) deep within the brain. The excess fluid increases the size of the ventricles and puts pressure on the brain. So, to answer your question - fluid is normal --- excess CSF fluid would be hydrocephalus. Now from trauma, stroke, aneurysm you can get blood (a fluid) pooling in parts of the brain and that would NOT be hydrocephalus. ...Read more
Skull base defect: You need to see an otolaryngologist. You may need a ct scan and MRI scan. An audiogram may be ordered. The leakage can come from the skull base around the nose or the ear.

What causes blood clot from sinus infection . Having sinus pressure no blood dripping only when blowing then coming out mouth from hocking from nose?
Sinusitis with clot: The inner lining of the nasal cavity is fragile. When dried out or inflamed, the underlying blood vessels of the nose tend to bleed. An older bleed that has stopped can cause blood clots. Please visit a PMD for treatment of your nosebleed and sinus infection, to see if antibiotics are needed. Sterile saline drops for nasal irrigation can help relieve symptoms until then. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I doubt it: The presence of mucus in your frontal sinus is the result of a blocked naso-frontal duct. This ductile blockage is the result of a nasal infection. I do not think that drinking water will solve the problem although drinking water is good. The duct leading from the frontal sinus to the nose needs to be decongested. A nose spray, decongestant, or steroids might be considered as early treatments. ...Read more

Septal bone deviation and left maxillary mucosal cyst, salt taste, collection of csf, can it be the results of the pituritary gland or diease in brain
Maybe: Typically, surgery is the most common cause of CSF leak and the cause of a salty taste in the mouth from pituitary disease. If there is no history of surgery, it is remotely possible that a pituitary tumor could grow large enough to cause a CSF leak but this would be the rare case. There is likely no relation of pituitary disease to septal deviation or mucosal cysts. ...Read more
