In brief: Skull fracture

The most common symptoms of basilar skull fracture are bruising around one or both eyes (a black eye) without known injury or blow to this area of the face; may also get blood behind the ear on the side of the fracture.
Less commonly there may be leakage of spinal fluid from the nose or the ear.
