Post traumatic encephalocele is protrusion of brain through skull gap after head trauma. We are presenting a 5 month old boy who suffered from head trauma and presented with right parietal encephalocele 17 days after injury. Computed tomography (CT) scan of brain confirmed the diagnosis. The encephalocele was repaired by craniotomy by using pericranium autologous graft to repair dura matter. The post-operative recovery was uneventful.
