Abstract

A 51-year-old man who had undergone right orbital decompression 5 months earlier developed a meningoencephalocele extending in the right sphenoid sinus through a skull base defect of the right ethmoid, sphenoid, and frontal bones. The authors report the third case to their knowledge of meningoencephalocele with cerebrospinal fluid leak after orbital decompression and discuss its management and measures that can be taken to prevent this rare but serious complication.
