Atypical etiology of rhinorrhea: spontaneous bilateral temporal encephalocele

, : Atypical etiology of rhinorrhea: spontaneous bilateral temporal encephalocele. Acta Otorrinolaringologica Espanola 63(3): 237-240

Spontaneous herniation of brain parenchyma through a dural and osseous defect in the temporal bone is a rare entity and a bilateral form is even more infrequent. It usually presents as an intermittent but persistent otorrhea. Manifestation as nose cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak is very uncommon. Our objective is presenting this unusual case report of a spontaneous bilateral encephalocele with a bilateral tegmen tympani defect.
