E-mail: karina.madureira@ufba.br The meningoencephalocele is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by protrusion of intracranial structures by an existing defect in the skull. This paper describes a case of meningoencephalocele in a heifer Nelore, two-day-old, who was born with a swelling in the dorsal portion of the head, dorsal to the frontal bone without neurological manifestations changes or pain. The ultrasound examination and computer tomography scan confirmed the meningoencephalocele, which was surgically repaired successfully.
