Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of nasopharyngeal glioma is presented in which the postnatal scans clearly show intracranial communication, whilst subsequent scans and surgical exploration could not demonstrate this finding. This case seems to confirm that the aetiology of these lesions is due to an encephalocele that subsequently loses its connection with the brain.
