Thread: Spontaneous CSF Rhinorrhea

  1. #1

    Default Spontaneous CSF Rhinorrhea

    Hello. I am a retired physician in South Florida (Boca) and have developed a spontaneous CSF leak with intermittent rhinorrhea and a constant salty taste in my throat. Any suggestions on specialists in the South Florida area?

    Hi WPGMD, and welcome!

    I hope someone will come along with some suggestions for you but you could look for the type of specialist by entering the name of the specialty and the geographical area in the search window. You should find links to a number of sites that will give you a list of names. You can usually check out a doctor's credentials easily enough from one of those sites.

    I tried "neurologists Boca Florida area" and found several sites, including this from Yelp.com:

    https://www.yelp.com/search?cflt=neu...ca+Raton%2C+FL

    And from WebMD:

    https://doctor.webmd.com/find-a-doct...ida/boca-raton

    If you have a primary care doctor, that person could refer you to someone, of course.

    Go to the ER,if your PCP or neuro isn’t available today for help in directing you to care.
    CSF leak can become very serious.
    But you likely know that as a retired physician? A bulletin board cannot help you with emergencies.
