|Abstract:||Proboscis lateralis is a rare craniofacial anomaly in which a rudimentary nasal appendage arises at the medial canthal area. The severity depends on organ involvement, including eyes, nose, cleft lip/palate, and/or concomitant intracranial anomalies. Here, we present a child with proboscis lateralis and associated trans-ethmoidal encephalocele. We suggest doing the preoperative CT and/or MRI to rule out associated intracranial anomalies and reliably preoperative planning tools. Moreover, we proposed an alternative nasal reconstructive technique using a composite graft from the proboscis mass at the same time as encephalocele repair with promising results.|
