Here, we report three cases of anterior meningoencephalocele operated on one-stage procedure, a combined of transcranial and anterior approach, for invagination removal of non-functional extracranial cerebral tissue with watertight closure of the dural defect; written consent was taken. All cases were nasoethmoid, the congenital anomalies between the nasal bones and the nasal cartilage.
