Encephalocele is a rare congenital defect characterized by a sac-like protrusion of the neural tissue and/or meninges through a defect in the skull. We reported a case with a naso-frontal anterior encephalocele which was diagnosed by prenatally and confirmed by postnatal evaluation and complications such as hypoadrenalism, diabetes insipidus and arterial thrombosis in the lower limbs were diagnosed in the neonatal period.
