Description of Encephalocoele

Encephalocoele: Cerebral tissue herniation through a congenital or acquired defect in the skull. The majority of congenital encephaloceles occur in the occipital or frontal regions.

Visual defects, psychomotor developmental delay, and persistent motor deficits frequently occur.
