Based on the location, a commonly accepted system classifies encephaloceles as occipital encephalocele and encephalocele of the cranial vault, which represent about 80% of all encephaloceles, and frontoethmoidal encephalocele and basal encephaloceles, collectively known as nasal encephaloceles [3].

Basal encephaloceles with morning glory syndrome and progressive hormonal and visual disturbances.
They represent the least common form of basal encephaloceles, which themselves account for only 10% of all encephaloceles (i.e., 1 in 40,000 live births).
DISCUSSION: Nasal encephaloceles can be divided into frontoethmoidal and basal encephaloceles. Both conditions are very rare, but frontoethmoidal encephaloceles show a relatively high incidence (1:5,000) in southeast Asia.
