CEREBROSPINAL FLUID rhinorrhoea is defined as the leakage of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID through the nose due to communication between nasal cavity and Sub-arachnoid space. It occurs due to breach in 4 layers â€“ mucosa of the nose and PNS, skull base, Duramater, Subarachnoid membrane. With the advent of nasal endoscope and advancement in technology, Endoscopic Endonasal closure of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID leak has reached tremendous heights due to exact localization and precise placement of graft. In this article, we are publishing a case report of Non-traumatic normal pressure CEREBROSPINAL FLUID leak of more than 1.5cm in size which was successfully closed Endoscopically by multilayered technique.
