Figure 1: (a) NCCT axial image showing the nasogastric tube traversing the cribriform plate (arrow head), with its the distal end near the occipital area (arrow); (b) sagittal image, showing the distal end of the tube along the calvaria, masquerading as an acute subdural hematoma (arrow); and, (c) the coronal image, showing the tube in the brain, visualized as a foreign body. (NCCT; noncontrast computed tomography)
