Temporal lobe meningoencephalocele is a rare entity and the acquired etiology is commoner especially from iatrogenic injury to the tegmen during mastoidectomy. Non-specificity of its clinical presentations often lead to delay in diagnosis and its neurological sequalae can be devastating. Hence, both clinical suspicion and imaging are both complementary. Various approaches have been described in meningoencephalocele repair. Here, we described a successful repair of the disease via transmastoid method for a huge tegmen defect, with simple materials, included surgicel and temporalis fascia graft.
