Antibiotics to prevent infection of the brain coverings (meningitis) in patients with basilar skull fracture | Cochrane

Basilar skull fracture (7% to 15.8% of all skull fractures) places the central nervous system in contact with bacteria from the nose and throat and may be associated with cerebrospinal fluid leakage (occurring in 2% to 20.8% of patients). Blood or watery discharge from the nose or ears, bruising behind the ear or around the eyes, hearing loss, inability to perceive odours or facial asymmetry may lead physicians to the diagnosis of basilar skull fracture. Patients with a basilar skull fracture may develop meningitis and some doctors give antibiotics in an attempt to reduce this risk.

Asymmetric hearing loss and tinnitus

A 56 year old man was referred by his general practitioner with a 10 year history of progressive hearing loss and tinnitus, mainly in his right ear. He did not describe otalgia or dizziness. After thinking about it more carefully, however, he admitted that he occasionally felt slightly unsteady but had attributed this to tiredness. His medical history was otherwise unremarkable, and there was no family history of deafness.
