Abstract

A 75-year-old man was admitted because of a spontaneous rhinorrhoea without a previous history of head injury. Computed tomography showed bone rarefaction of the floor of the middle cranial fossa and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a right temporal encephalocele. This was treated via extradural approach, and the bone defects were plugged with temporalis fascia, muscle and the fibrin glue. No recurrence of rhinorrhoea was observed at the follow-up (1 year).
