Encephalocele is a rarely occurring cranial congenital malformation characterized by the formation of a sac in the cranial vault and herniation of the intracranial structures, at a rate of 0.8–5 per 10,000 live births worldwide. Large size encephaloceles, especially in limited-resource settings, present several preoperative, surgical, and postoperative challenges. We report the case of a newborn presenting giant parietal encephalocele who underwent a successful surgical intervention in a limited-resource setting.
