✓ A case of sphenoethmoidal meningoencephalocele associated with agenesis of the corpus callosum and median cleft lip and palate in a baby boy is reported. Two other cases have been reported previously presenting exactly the same findings. It is possible that these malformations constitute a distinct type of congenital anomaly.
