Surgery for frontoethmoidal encephalocoeles involves correction of the cosmetic deformity, hypertelorism, orbital dystopia, elongation of the nose and other stigmata of midline or lateral facial defects. The technical aspects of a single stage correction of this disorder is presented. The coexistence of Chiari malformation (type 1), mild ventriculomegaly with the nasoethmoidal encephalocoele was a rare association in the reported case.
