We report a case who had an open myelomeningocele and developed respiratory arrest associated with spontaneous pneumocephalus. Spontaneous respiration resumed after closing of the defect and ventriculoperitoneal shunting. We conclude that repair of the defect in the early period is very useful both to minimize the infection risk and to prevent the complication of pneumocephalus in these cases.
