Hernia of the brain.
Protrusion of the brain through the cranial cavity.
protrusion of brain tissue through a congenital fissure in the skull
a birth defect in which a sac extends from an opening in the skull
a neural tube defect of lesser severity then anencephaly
a similar sac protruding from the back at the top of the neural tube
Herniation of brain tissue through a defect in the skull
A birth defect where the brain and protective covering are found outside the babyâ€™s skull. For more information see the Factsheet on Encephalocele.
neural tube defect affecting the skull, in which cerebral tissue protrudes through an opening in the skull.
Protrusion of the brain through a cranial fissure.
The protrusion of the brain substance through a defect in the skull.
Protrusion of a portion of the brain through the bones of the skull. (See Cranium Bifidum)
The herniation of brain meninges through a skull defect.
a birth defect that results in a hole in the skull through which brain tissue protrudes. although most babies with encephalocele do not live or are severely retarded, a few children have survived because of early surgery to correct this defect.
a defect of the skull with protrusion of brain tissue
Protrusion of the brain or part of the brain through a fissure in the bones of the skull.
Encephalocele is a neural tube defect, the cause of which is not known. There have been studies and evidence linking NTD's to folic acid. The severity of encephalocele varies, depending on the location.
