Abstract

Recurrent meningitis poses a diagnostic dilemma in which helplessness of the treating physician goes a
long way and continues to haunt him until the “bulls eye” is hit. Here we present a case of a young girl with
frequent episodes of meningitis in which conventional neuroimaging done each time missed the diagnosis
of frontal meningoencephalocoele until a very high index of clinical suspicion of a possible anatomical bony
defect provoked the enthusiasm of the neuroradiologist for a reconstructed CT imaging thus confirming the
diagnosis.
