In brief: Basilar skull fractu

There is generally no specific treatment for basilar skull fracture unless the injury has led to a leaking of spinal fluid; then the leak would be repaired.
Otherwise just rest and analgesics for pain are used. Symptoms of a basilar skull fracture include shiners under your eyes (racoon eyes) and blood behind the ear drum. It generally results from a blow to the back of the head.
