Abstract: Spontaneous lateral sphenoidal meningoencephalocele is a rare entity. It can be either spontaneous or acquired. We are reporting a case of spontaneous meningoencephalocele in a 53year old female with a history of CSF rhinorrhea for which radiological evaluation was done with high-resolution CT and MRI.CT showed a defect in the lateral wall of sphenoid sinus and MRI revealed herniation of brain parenchyma through the defect along with CSF. Surgical correction and short term follow up was done
