Abstract

Encephalomeningocele is a rare disease presenting extracranial protrusion of the brain and meninges through the skull base defect. The authors experienced a case of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea developing from encephalomeningocele which was protruded into the nasal cavity through the cribriform plate. It was repaired successfully with septal bone and middle turbinate mucosa under nasal endoscopy. The radiologic features and techniques for the endoscopic management of meningoencephalocele with CSF rhinorrhea are discussed.
