Skull wall pierced during Covid test
While the Covid-19 smear test was being performed on a woman in the USA, the skull wall was punctured.
While a new type of corona virus (Covid-19) swab test was performed on a woman in her 40s in the USA, the skull wall was punctured.
Details of the case were published in the journal “JAMA Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery”.
The cerebrospinal fluid began to flow from her nose when the wall protecting her skull was ruptured while the woman living in Iowa had the swab test.
HEAD TURN, METALLIC TASTE, LIGHT SENSITIVITY
The woman consulted the doctor with complaints of headache, dizziness and vomiting, as well as a stiff neck, a metallic taste and sensitivity to light.
Jarrett Walsh, a doctor at the University of Iowa who examined the case, and his team saw a hole was made under the woman’s skull in the tests.
THE TREATMENT THAT HAPPENED TO THE CAUSE IN THE PAST
Walsh stated that they believed that the long stick used in the swab test was the result of the treatment the woman had received in the past for intracranial hypertension.
It was pointed out that this treatment resulted in encephalocele, which means “sac-like herniation of brain tissue through an opening in the skull” and that the woman had surgery in July.
ORAL SWING WARNING
Experts emphasized that those who have excessive sinus or skull base surgery should only request an oral swab to detect Covid-19.
