Resumo
The objective of this paper is to present a case of a 2-year-old girt diagnosed with a meningo-encephalocele after episodes of meningitis, and treated with a transnasal endoscopic approach using nasal septal, flaps pediculated at the sphenopalatine artery. Endoscopic repair is a viable and minimally invasive alternative to traditional craniotomy, however technical difficulties encountered as welt as questions that remain unanswered are discussed.
