Temporal bone fractures frequently present severe dizziness coupled with CT scan evidence of fracture. These injuries are often accompanied by profound hearing loss, facial paralysis, or facial weakness.
Treatment is based on managing facial nerve injury, hearing loss, vestibular dysfunction, and Cerebral Spinal Fluid leakage. In some cases, surgical exploration may be warranted.
Hearing loss can sometimes be addressed surgically, though some hearing loss conditions may be permanent and there may be no medical or surgical therapies available to improve hearing.
Patients who have a temporal bone fracture and leakage of cerebral spinal fluid are frequently hospitalized because of risk of meningitis. The leak usually stops spontaneously within a few days, though a lumbar drain or surgical closure of the defect is occasionally required.
