Fistulas of the cerebrospinal fluid through the back wall of the clivus are extremely rare until 2015 only have been reported in 16 cases. These are a serious problem and a potentially fatal condition whose management requires a multidisciplinary approach. We report the case of a 56 year-old female with 6 months of evolution, of spontaneous occurrence, characterized by a runny nose, and headache holocraneana intermittent mild to moderate intensity. In this case we repaired the fistula with a graft of septal cartilage reinforced with a flap of mucosal nasoseptal and fibrin glue, we obtained a successful outcome.
