HOLANDA, Maurus Marques de Almeida; ROCHA, Artur Bastos; SANTOS, Rayan Haquim Pinheiro  and  FURTADO, Paulo Germano Cavalcanti. Basal sphenoethmoidal encephalocele in association with midline cleft lip and palate: case report. Radiol Bras [online]. 2011, vol.44, n.6, pp.399-400. ISSN 1678-7099.

Association of basal sphenoethmoidal encephalocele with midline cleft lip and palate is extremely rare. The authors report the case of a nine-year-old girl presenting a midline facial cleft with meningocele that was noticeable through the palatine defect as a medial intranasal pulsatile mass. An analysis of clinical and radiological findings of the present case of cranial dysraphism is carried out.

Keywords : Encephalocele; Cleft palate; Congenital malformation.
