Encephalocele is a type of Neural tube defect. Encephaloceles are rare but giant encephaloceles are very rare. Giant encephalocele means that encephalocele size is greater than maximum head circumference. It may contain cerebrospinal fluid (csf), meninges, brain and venous sinuses. These cases are challenging to Neurosurgeon, Neuro anaesthetiest, neuro radiologist and Nursing care staff. In our retrospective study we analyzed occipito-suboccipital neonatal giant encephalocele and review the Literature.

Keywords: Giant encephalocele, Head-circumference, Neural tube defect, Neonate Occipito–suboccipital region.
