Not associated with mid-face fractures are skull base fractures after axial head trauma from the vertex with fractures in the region of the foramen magnum and the risk of a burst fracture of the first cervical vertebra (atlas ring burst fracture). There are direct and indirect signs of skull base fractures. Direct signs are fracture lines, fracture gaps and steps between fragments. Indirect signs are intracranial air collections and liquorrhea. Intracranial air collections can be demonstrated in 25–30% of skull base fractures (Probst and Tomaschett 1990).
