Covid-19 Nasal Swab Test Led To Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak

Nina Shapiro

Nicolas Cage certainly bucks a lot of trends. He once told media that, for residency reasons, the award he won for the 1996 film Leaving Las Vegas was “in a truck somewhere moving through Louisiana”. Apparently, one of the ways the authorities determine if you’re a resident or not – in what must be the most niche of tests – is to ask where your Academy Award is.

这里并不是要给特斯拉浇一瓢冷水。它已经证明自己具有生产一款复杂、先进且外观诱人的产品的能力。但无论是特斯拉自己的内部预测,还是投资人对其股票的追捧,都基于同样一个预期,那就是特斯拉未来依然会延续最近的大热势头。这是一种危险的假设,原因如下:

In 2010, a 14-month-old child accidentally fell on a chopstick he had playfully placed into his nose. It did, indeed, puncture the roof of his nose and lodge into his brain. Neurosurgeons did successfully remove the chopstick, with little internal damage long term.

The nasal, or nasopharyngeal, swab for Covid-19 is a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test looking for active infection, and remains the most accurate to date to assess for acutely infected individuals. This in contrast to the antigen, or rapid test, also performed as a nasopharyngeal swab, which is much less accurate, especially if the test result is negative (it has a very high false-negative rate). The antibody test, which is a blood test, is performed to detect evidence of prior infection, not active illness.

A 40-year-old woman in Iowa underwent a nasopharyngeal Covid-19 swab test as part of her preoperative clearance for an elective hernia repair. Soon after, she developed headache, nausea, vomiting, and clear watery drainage from the side of her nose where the swab had been placed. This was not the type of drainage one would get from allergies, a cold, or even a sinus infection. Picture your kitchen sink trickling out water if it’s not fully turned off. That’s what a spinal fluid leak can look like, which is what she had. In addition, the fact that a runny nose is just on one side is often a tip-off of something unusual. As published in the October issue of JAMA Otolaryngology, it turned out that she had had prior nasal polyp surgery two decades ago, as well as a history of disorder called intracranial hypertension, or increased pressure of the fluid surrounding the brain. The combination of these two entities led to a small defect in the bone between the roof of the nose and the brain, and she had developed a pocket of the brain’s lining prolapsing into the nose, known as an encephalocele. The sack of the encephalocele got nicked by the Covid-19 swab.

Radiologic imaging of her brain and sinuses demonstrated a one-inch area where there was no bony roof of her nose. Instead, there was an out-pouching of the brain’s lining, known as an encephalocele, filled with spinal fluid. The pouch got pierced by the swab, and just like piercing a water balloon that’s attached to a faucet, it immediately started leaking clear cerebrospinal fluid. Once this was identified, she underwent surgical repair of the defect in the bone, and the spinal fluid leak was controlled and repaired.

According to Dr. Jarrett Walsh, Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Iowa, and senior author of this report, “If the swab is introduced at an angle toward the skull base, then any defect in the skull base is potentially put at risk. Correct technique, following the floor of the nose, is exceptionally safe and will not cause skull base trauma.” When asked if he would recommend avoiding nasopharyngeal testing swabs in general, he thinks not: “Nasopharynx swabs, performed correctly, are safe...I think the group of patients that needs to exercise caution in testing are those who have had anterior (nasal) skull base surgery – specifically those who have had reconstruction of the anterior skull base. With missing bone between the nose and the brain, an errant swab could have significant consequences. This is the group that I would encourage considering an alternative testing technique, if it is available.”

When it comes to Covid-19 diagnostic testing, nasopharyngeal swab approach has been shown to be more accurate than oropharyngeal (oral) swab. However, in some cases, especially where a patient has had prior surgeries in the area between the nose and the brain, or prior injuries in that region, physicians will accept oropharyngeal testing for pre-procedure screening.

In a rigorous analysis of Dutch financial records, Koudijs and Voth conclude that the only real difference between the pessimists and the optimists was whether they had gone through a harrowing personal experience. Koudijs compares it to the behavior of people who lived through the Great Depression, and who avoided financial risk for decades after trauma had passed.

近几十年来,很少有年份像2014年那样一开始就充满那么多的悲观情绪。对2014年的预测贯穿了一个主题,即这一年看起来与1914年相似得让人害怕。大多数学者的预测都是悲观和令人沮丧的,尤其是对于东亚。然而,虽然发生了许多可怕的事件——从马航MH17航班在乌克兰坠落,到尼日利亚数百女学生被绑架,以及“伊拉克和黎凡特伊斯兰国”(Isis)的崛起——但我们避免了全面的世界大战。现在,2014年已结束,没有重现1914年的悲剧。探究为什么这些学者预测错了(特别是他们认为亚洲存在冲突可能性的想法)或许是明智的。

The value of goods that crossed international borders last year fell 13.8 per cent in dollar terms — the first contraction since 2009 — according to the Netherlands Bureau of Economic Policy Analysis’s World Trade Monitor. Much of the slump was due to a slowdown in China and other emerging economies.
