Even though the presence of these signs pointed toward an intracranial space occupying lesion, the absence of these signs should not completely remove the suspicion of a space occupying lesion and a brain MRI or CT head should be ordered where there is the slightest possibility of an intracranial lesion.
Next, the fistulous connection between the air in the extracranial cavity and the intracranial space must be identified.
