Three-dimensional computed tomography imaging of a frontal skull base fracture: Case report

Three-dimensional computed tomography imaging of a frontal skull base fracture: Case report

Neurologia Medico-Chirurgica 37(11): 838-840

A 7-year-old boy presented with recurrent meningitis after head trauma. Coronal computed tomography (CT) revealed prolapse of the intracranial soft tissue into the right ethmoidal sinus, leading to the diagnosis of right frontal skull base fracture. Three-dimensional CT with bone windows provided a lifelike image of the fracture lateral to the right olfactory groove. This image was most useful in the preoperative planning of the repair surgery.
