ConclusionEndoscopic management of paediatric meningoencephaloceles is a reliable and safe approach and it is known to have no adverse effects on facial growth. It carries a satisfactory success rate, reduces the in-hospital stay with lower cost of treatment, better cosmesis and lower morbidity than external procedures. It requires multidisciplinary team setting in a tertiary centre with experienced endoscopic anterior skull base surgeons. Pre-operative assessment and post-operative care are of paramount importance and larger series need to be studied to reach safe conclusions and establish management guidelines.
